The transformation, of these enemy pilots 
into business partners is a parable for the 
ground-shaking change taking place in rela-

from Morocco to the Golf that the Jewish state 
has become an accepted part of life in the 
Middle East.

Israel Demands Arafat Restate 
Commitment to Peace Accord 


rffman -. 




JERUSALEM demawfed Mtmday 
that Yasser Arafat, chairman of the Palestine 
Liberation Organization^ recommit. himself in 
writing to the Ga 2 *Jerid» peace accord, and 
senior Israefi leaders warned that the process of 
Palestinian sdf-ruk would be frozen if Mr. 
Arafat could not assert control in those two 
areas. 

The demands followed continuing 4isanay 
among the Palestinian security forces and the 
disclosure of further excerpts from a speech Mr. 
Arafat delivered May 10 in a Johannesburg 
mosque, in which he appeared to imply he 
would abrogate the accord with Israel. It was 
disclosed earlier that Mr. Arafat had called in 
the same speech for a ^jihad” to liberate Jerusa- 
lem. He said he had been misunderstood. 

Prime Minisier Yitzhak Rabin’s spokesman, 
Odcd Ben-Ami, said Israel would ask Mr. Ara-

“This agreement, I am not considering it 
more than the agreement which had been 
signed between our Prophet Mohammed and 
Kuraish,” Mr. Arafat said. 

- Since some scholars have contended that 
Mo hamm ed broke die truce, his statement 
could indicate that Mr. Arafat intends to do the

SEOUL — When Mitsubishi Motors Corp. 
said recently that it might buy steel from Po- 
hang Iron and Steel Co. in South Korea, it 
created headlines on both sides of the Sea of 
Japan. Japanese auto companies, as a rule, have 
never bought Korean steel 

But with the rise of the yen, Korean steel is 
now about 20 percent cheaper than Japanese 
steel, Mitsubishi said, a difference too great to 
ignore. 

Even as it squeezes Japan's famous steel, 
auto and electronics companies, the strong yen 
has given new-life to their competitors in South 
Korea and elsewhere in Asia, pushing growth 
throughout what is already the world's fastest 
growing region. 

“It's a tailwind for us.” said Kim Sun Hong, 
the chairman of Kia Motors Corp., Koreans 
second-largest automaker. The company is 


doubling capacity at its main factory in antici- 
pation of grater exports. 

Owing i n part to the yen’s rise, South Korea's 
economy is booming again after two vears of 
sluggishness. Economists expect 7 percent to 8 
percent growth this year, compared with 5.6 
percent last year and 5 percent the vear before 
that 

New factories are going up everywhere and 
the government has decided to allow 20.000 
foreign workers into the country to help fill job 
vacancies. 


‘The most important factor is the ven," said 
Lim Dong Sung, president of the Samsung 
Economic Research Institute. “The economic 
recovery is led by heavy industry — cars, ship- 
building, electronics. Most of these industries 
compete with Japan." 

The yen is now worth about 7.7 Korean won. 
a gain of 22 percent from 6.3 won at the end of 
1992. That has given Korean products a price 


advantage of 10 percent to 25 percent over 
Japanese ones, Korean executives say. 

With such an advantage. South Korea’s ship- 
building industry surpassed Japan's in 1993 to 
become the world's largest in terms of orders 
received. Korean auto exports soared 40 per- 
cent in 1993 to 640,000 vehicles and another 
strong gain is expected this year. 

The South Korean consumer electronics in- 
dustry has benefited as welL “The export busi- 
ness is really booming," said Bae Soon Hoon, 
president of Daewoo Electronics Co. Daewoo's 
exports in the first quarter were up 48 percent 
to SSI 1 million. 

Some of these exports are products that are 
sold by Japanese companies under their own 
names. 


In most cases. Korean products are displac- 
ing Japanese ones in the United Slates. Europe.

U,S. Prepares to Welcome Slower Growth 


See JIHAD, Page 5 







By John M. Berry 

Washington Post Service 

WASHINGTON — After months of rapid 
growth that have pushed the American econo- 
my close to the limits of what it can produce 
without straining, a broad array of forecasters 
is predicting that slower growth is on the way. 

But that doesn't mean that hard times are 
ahead. Indeed, to most economists, a slight 
slowdown would be welcome news. 

“Despite a pattern of decelerating growth, 
the next couple of years may very weD be the 
best of the expansion," said Laurence H. Mey- 
er, who heads a forecasting firm in Si. Louis' 

Mr. Meyer’s forecast, which is s imilar to that 
of many other economists, calls for growth to 
fall below a 3 percent annual rate in the second 
half of this year, slowing to about 2J percent in 
1995 and even less in 1996. 

Growth win be slowing this year, the fore- 


casts say, both because of natural forces in an 
economy thai is moving into die fourth year of 
an expansion and because of the Tour increases 
in inleresl rates engineered this year by the 
Federal Reserve Board. 

The Fed. which raised short-term rates by 
half a percentage point last week, has been 
boosting rates precisely to slow growth, which 
reached a 7 percent annual rate in the final 
three months of Iasi year. The Fed hopes that 
higher rales will keep the economy from over- 
heating and generating more inflation down the 
road. 

This slightly slower growth is probably good 
news for President Bui Clinton, as it should 
mean the economy will still be reasonably 
strong at the time of the congressional elections 
in November and may still be growing in 1996. 
the next presidential election year. 

For politicians seeking re-election this year. 


economic conditions should be about as good 
as they are likely to get on the national level. 
For instance. Mr. Meyer expects Americans' 
inflation-adjusted after-tax incomes to go up 
2.6 percent this year, which — except for 1992 
— would be the largest increase since 1988. 

While the growth figures in the new forecasts 
may seem low, Mr. Meyer and others said 
growth in that range would continue pushing 
down the unemployment rate, which was 6.4 
percent Last month, into 1996. 

More important, while the economy will be 
growing relatively slowly. It will be operating ai 
or slightly above the level that could cause a 
small, gradual rise in inflation — which is 
regarded by most economists as the measure of 
full employment. 

Of course, economic conditions vary widely 
across the country, with California and parts of

U.S. and Japan Nearing Trade Deal

said the fact that the discussions, which had 


originally been scheduled to last only one 
day, were still under way was a “good and 
positive sign."

Kantor, said Japan hid responded to pro- 
posals he had put forward a month ago in 
Morocco “in a very positive manner,” tot he 
refused to go ioto specifics about what was

HO CHI MEMH CITY. Vietnam — The 
terror erf arbitrary arrests, secret trials and pe-

New York Times Service 

BERLIN — Chancellor Helmut Kohl won 
an important political victory Monday when a 
specialty constituted assembly chose his candi- 
date, Roman Herzog, chief justice of Germa- 
ny s highest court to be the next president 
Mr. Herzog, 60, will take office on Julv 1, 
replacing Richard von Weizsacker, who after 
two five-year terms was ineligible for re-elec- 
tion. 

Although the German presidency was once 
considered to be above partisan politics, this 
year’s campaign was hard-fought by party lead- 
ers because of its potential impact on the race 
for chanceDor that is under way. Mr. Kohl 
warned delegates from his Christian Democrat- 
ic Union that if Mr. Herzog failed to win, the 
party's chances in the October election would 
suffer. 

The chancellor, who was sitting at Mr. Her- 
zog’s side when the result was announced, is 
facing a tough re-election campaign against 
Rudolf Scharping of the Social Democratic 
Party. The election Monday suggested that Mr. 
Kohl remains strong. 

In the decisive third round of voting, Mr. 
Herzog won the support of the centrist Free 
Democrats, who are Mr. Kohl’s junior coalition 
partners. Their decision was taken as a sign that 
the coalition is firm. 

After the election, Mr. Herzog said in a 
speech that Germany faced an uncer tain and 
difficult future, but expressed confidence that 
“we Germans, we Europeans, can do what must 

be done." 

He also appealed for greater understanding 
between the country’s East and West. 

“To the citizens of the former Federal Re- 
public, of whom much sacrifice is being asked, I 
would say that this is the result of ahistorica] 
injustice which happened to fall on Ihe Elbe 
border,” he said. 

“To those in the new states, please under- 
stand that you are not a burden to us but a 
windfall," he said. “You bring much with you, 
experiences that we in the West did not have, in 
a world where many things were more humane 
than they were with us.” 

Mr. Herzog failed to win the dear majority of 
votes needed for victory in the first two rounds, 
but in the third round he took 696 votes to 605 
for his Sodal Democratic opponent, Johannes 
Rau, governor of North Rhme-Westfalia. 

The vote was taken at the Reichstag, the once 
and future home of the Parliament, by a U24- 
member assembly consisting of all 662 mem- 
bers of Parliament's lower house and an equal 
number of representatives from the 16 state 
governments. 

Opinion surveys suggested that if the public 
had been allowed to vote, the result would have 
been different, with Mr. Rau easily defeating 
Mr. Herzog, who is relatively unknown. 

Tire president has little formal power, but the 

job became highly visible after Mr. Weizsflcker 
began usng it as a pulpit to denounce terror 
against foreigners and to remind Germans that 
they should not forget negative aspects of their 
history. 

Mr. Herzog is a highly respected jurist but a 
puzzle to many Germans. 

He is a native Bavarian, though unlike most 
Bavarians he is Protestant rather than Catholic. 

He favors Brazilian dgars and collects Tommy 
Dorsey recordings. 

While serving as justice minis ter in the west- 
ern state of Baden-Wuntemberg, Mr. Herzog 
earned a hard-line reputation by introducing

The defector. Kim Dui Ho. a 
former official at a North Korean 
reprocessing plant, told the Tokyo 
newspaper Yomiuri that the fuel 
came from a reactor at Yongbyon. 
which is at the center of the dispute 
between Pyongyang and the Inter- 
national Atomic Energy Agency. 

Plutonium is a key ingredient lor 
a nuclear bomb. North Korea, 
which denies it is trying to develop 
such weapons, insists the only plu- 
tonium it ever produced at Yong- 
byon was "a tiny amount” in 1992. 

So far. however, it has barred 
atomic agency experts from carry- 
ing out checks to determine wheth- 
er it was telling the truth. 

“If you have 12 kilograms of plu- 
tonium. you can make two nuclear 
bombs," said Mr. Kim. who defect- 
ed to South Korea on May 7. 

Mr. Kim also said that North 
Korea's secret nuclear develop- 
ment program was under the per- 
sonal supervision or President Kim 
11 Sung and his son. Kim Jong II.

in the Paris Press 2 The Allies Are Losing 


By Barry' James 

Inwmutten-il ilcralj Trhwie 

PARIS — Hir-v did Lhe Normandy landings 50 years 
ago look from the other side? The pro-German press in 
Paris reported the operation with banner headlines, but 
predicted an early failure for the .Allies. 

Le Matin reported from German official sources that 
the Allies had lost 25.600 men in the first day of fighting — 
the real figure was f 1.000 casualties or more — and had 
been forced to abandon several bridgeheads. It said air- 
borne forces had been effectively wiped out by land mines 
and German fire. 

“The first day of the invasion ended with a complete 
defensive success." the newspaper said, ciung sources in 
Berlin. 

The June 7 front page included an appeal from Marshal 
Philippe Pkruin. the chief of state, for the French to remain 
calm and go about their duties normally while the fighting 
look place. 

In an oblique reference to the resistance. Petain warned 
people not to listen to those seeking to exploit the nation's 
distress. They threatened to lead it to disaster, he said. 

A report in the same edition said the information 
minister. Philippe Henriot, had been to Berlin to “render 
homage to the Waffen SS" — Hitlers most fanatical 
troops — which he said were fighting to achieve a “Euro-, 
pean revolution.” 

The following day. June 8, things were looking a little 
clearer for Le Matin, which reported that German resis- 


tance was strengthening along the Norciandv coast and called German “flying robots’^ were seriously disrupting 


that despite “desperate efforts" the .Allies had failed in 
their attempts to occupy Cherbourg and Caen. 

Le Matin reported that American. British and Canadi- 
an prisoners were being taken to Rouen, where it said 
“incidents” had occurred with the local population, an- 
gered by Allied bombing raids on their city. 

Meanwhile. Mr. Henriot continued his visit to Berlin by 
calling on the propaganda minister. Joseph Goebbels. He 
recalled the enthusiastic reception given recently to Retain 
in Paris. This, he said, was proof that the French followed 
a single govern men l that of the marshal. A few weeks 
later, the pec-pie of Paris were to give an equally enthusias- 
tic reception to General Charles de Gaulle’. 

The following week, on June 15. Le Cri du Peupie in 
Paris said the “Anajo-Americans" were vainly attempting 
to enlarge their bridgehead. For once, the newspaper said, 
correspondents from Germany. Britain and America 
could agree on one thing: “The destruction is terrific." 

On June 21, Le Petit Parisien reported the bombard- 
ment of London by a new German weapon described as 
“meteors or dynamite” — the V-l flying bombs. News of 
the fighting in' Normand> was relegated to page 2, where 
the newspaper, in a story datelined from Berlin, said that 
American troops were driving northward toward Cher- 
bourg. But the movement was dismissed as of no impor- 
tance. and German military sources said that the real 
battle of Normandy had not yet begun. 

The following day. June 22. Paris Midi said that the so 


supplies to the “invasion army” in France. Without men- 
tioning German losses, it said 650 American and British 
tanks had been destroyed since the beginning of the 
Normandy fighting. 

Paris-Soir on June 24 led with a warning by Goebbels 
that Germany's new weapon would continue to rain on 
London. The first phase of reprisals, he said, was but a 
prelude and there would be more powerful and effective 
weapons. 

The newspaper also picked up an article from the 
London newspaper News Chronicle explaining why the 
United States had refused to recognize de Gaulle's Free 
French as the legitimate government in France. 

It said America's aim was to defeat Germany while De 
Gaulle's was to achieve the spiritual rebirth of France — 
and “it is first necessary to show that France can be 
regenerated." 

The article was accompanied by a statement from de 
Gaulle's representative in Normandy saying that there 
could be no elections in France for several years to allow 
for “ihe detoxification of populations infected by German 
propaganda." 

Also on its front page, Paris-Soir reported a major 
.Allied bombing raid on the Paris region, which it said 
killed at least 75 and wounded 171. The head of police in 
the capital bemoaned the “inexplicable imprudence” of 
the Parisians, who he said had flocked to see what was 
happening rather than taking shelter.

NEW YORK — More than 40

a comeback in the United States, 
flying more and more passengers 
on routes long served by jets. 
While the smaller airplanes offer 


passengers and 25 years after the some advantages, many comrouni-

eled off. leaving the airlines with 
too much capacity and years of 
billion-dollar losses. Over the last 
four years, the world’s major air- 
lines have lost S15.6 billion. 

Because jet aircraft are more ex- 
pensive to operate on shorter 
fiighis than propeller planes, air- 
lines in the United States and in 
countries throughout the world are 
switching to propeller-driven 
planes, finding they can reduce op- 
erating costs by 20 percent to 40 
percent on a typical route. 

How big a difference does a pro- 
peller aircraft mean to passengers? 
Fares generally do not change with 
a switch to propeller planes, and 
the travel time is not enormously 
different 

Even though jet aircraft have far 
higher top speeds, short routes of- 
ten consist of a long climb and a 
long descent with just a modest 
sprint in between. 

But behind the passenger discon- 
tent are some differences that can- 
not be erased. Propeller aircraft 
generally fly at lower altitudes, 
where turbulence is greater. 

And boarding a propeller craft is 
usually a vivid reminder of what is 
ahead. Rather than walking down a 
covered ramp, impervious to wind 
or precipitation, passengers on a 
propeller plane often walk outside, 
exposed to noise and the elements. 

Some communities are so fearful 
that the loss of jet service will cur- 
tail economic development that 
they have guaranteed profits to air- 
lines that continue to provide jets.

Bomb Ends Colombia Election Peace 

BOGOTA (Reuters) — A bomb blast in Medellin that killed six ptiBi£

fears among officials that violence may stain the presidential elections 
Sunday. V; ; i i ": 

Police said Monday they thought the 40-kilogram (88-pound) bomk

U.S. House Acts on Ocean Dumping ^ 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Acceding to an international convention 
signed Iasi year, the House of Representatives approved a ban-Monda) 
on dumping radioactive waste in the ocean. ''\7 ‘A 

The measure, which passed by voice vote, strengthens a 1972 law that 
prohibits the dumping of high-level radioactive wastes into ocean_warers. 
The bill must still be considered by the Senate. • 

The United Slates and most other industrialized nations in 1972 agreed 
to the London Dumping Convention that banned high-level radioactive 
waste dumping. In 1983 those nations also agreed to a voluntarynwrato- 
rium on disposing of low-level radioactive wastes in the ocean. ' The 
voluntary moratorium was formalized in November.

WASHINGTON — ■ Jacqueline Kenne- 
dy Onassis was buried on Monday at Ar- 
lington National Cemetery in Washington 
beside an eternal flame she lighted three 
decades ago at the grave of her assassinated 
husband, the 35th president of the United 
States. 


Her two children. John F. Kennedy Jr. 
and Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, joined 
100 close friends and family members for a 
final good-bye, each kneeling and kissing 
her mahogany casket. Mr. Kennedy leaned 
to louch his father’s gravestone as well. 

The moment was poignant and painful 
for millions of Americans who had strong 
memories of a 34-ytar-old widow escorting 


her two young children during the funeral 
for President John F. Kennedy in 1963. 

American television networks interrupt- 
ed their programming to bring live cover- 
age of the Onassis funeral and burial, inter- 
spersed with historical footage from the 
Kennedy years. Earlier in the day. thou- 
sands of mourners stood behind police 
barricades outside the private funeral in 
New York. 

President Bill Clinton, long an admirer 

of President Kennedy and more recently 

an acquaintance of Mrs. Onassis. offered a 
brief graveside eulogy, saying: “God gave 
her very great gifts and imposed upon her 
great burdens. She bore them all with dig- 
nity and grace and uncommon common 
sense. 

“May the flame she lit x> long ago bum 


ever brighter here and always brighter in 
our beans. God bless vou friend, and fare- 
wdL" 

Mrs. Onassis was 64 when she died of 
cancer last week at her apartment in New 
York, where she had worked as a book 
editor and doted oo her daughter's three 
children. 

She was eulogized by her brother-in-law. 
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, at a funeral 
Mass in the same New York church. St. 
Ignatius Loyola, where she had been chris- 
tened. As be had done so manv times at 
funerals for members of the Kennedy fam- 
ily, the senator mixed humor with somber 
affection. 

He recalled that Mrs. Onassis had invit- 
ed die Clintons aboard the fa mi ly yacht 
during a vacation at Martha's Vineyard 


last year. She urged the senator to step off 
the boat and greet the president, instead of 
leaving that duty to Maurice Tempelstnan. 
her longtime companion. 

“I said. 'Maurice is already there.' ” the 
senator said. 

“And Jackie answered with a smile: 
Teddy, you do iL Maurice isn’t running for 
re-election.’ ” 

Mr. Kennedy went on to praise his sis- 
ter-in-law as a woman with a strong sense 
of self and an equally strong devotion to 
her children. 

He recounted a remark she had ma de of 
her first husband the month after his assas- 
sination: "They made him a legend, when 
he would have preferred to be a man." 

He explained her struggle for privacy 
this way: “She never wanted public notice

PHOENIX, Arizona — When Bill Clinton speaks, Pamela Lopez 
and Bob Lewis listen. “He's smooth, and he’s talking like a man on 
your side," said Mr. Lewis. Ms. Lopez agreed: “He can get up and 
give a talk and actually, you know. I've been caught up in the 
emotional effect." 

That said, the two Phoenix-area residents think less of the presi- 
dent today than when he was elected in 1992. They did not vote for 
him then and cannot imagine doing so now. “He’s a typical politi- 
tian.” said Ms. Lopez, a paralegal. Mr. Lewis, who works in the

WASHINGTON —For thefir>i 
lime since President Bill Clinton 
proposed a national health insur- 
ance plan in September, some of 
his opponents are giving ground. 

Not necessarily a lot. “It’s a very 
narrow strip of ground," said Sena- 
tor Daniel R. Coats, Republican of 
Indiana, who has suspended his all- 
out opposition to anything resem- 
bling the Qinton proposal. 

He did so just long enough to 
join a unanimous vote by the Sen- 
ate Labor Committee for a cost- 
control plan that involved major 
concessions by both sides. 

Republicans cm the committee 
who shifted thrir position were 
joined by Senator John B. Breaux, 
a Louisiana Democrat on the Fi- 
nance Committee, who decided 
that be could support requiring 
most employers to pay for their 
workers’ insurance. 

The shifts hardly opened a flood- 
gate. Still, there was important 
movement on the most crurial issue 
of all, how to pay for any universal 
insurance system. 

There was also a meeting of 
minds on cost control, one of doz- 
ens of complicated issues that 
Democrats have committed them- 
selves to clearing away over the 
next few weeks, a necessity if Con- 
gress is to successfully redesign the 
nation’s health care system this 
year. 

Republicans on the Labor Com- 
mittee, plainly uncomfortable in 
the role of naysayers assigned by 


thrir pony's leaders, may make 
some more deals this week’on sub- 
jects like the degree of bureaucracy 
needed to supervise a new health 
system. That would be another 
measure of opposition flexibility, 
for until last week it was only Mr. 
Clinton's allies who were offering 
deals as they trolled for votes. 

Republicans wanted any bene- 
fits program defined by an inde- 
idem board, not by Congress.

.Career Officers Seek Showdown on Political Nominees 


'1 


t ■ By John M. Goshko 

L ‘ Washmpan Post Service 

WASHINGTON — The American Forrign Service 
Association intends to oppose President Bin Clinton's 
nnfflflin! nomination of a fellow Arkansan, Brady Anderson, to 
55 1 . 1CC3S L'lWUfT he UJS. ambassador in Tanzania. But instead of com- 
■plaining that Mr. Anderson lacks credentials, the 
association acknowledges that he is well qualified to 
serve. as ambassador to Tanzania. 

*1 1 ‘What bothers the professional organization, which 
bets as lhe bar gaining agent for the Foreign Service, is 
.that Mr. Anderson’s nomination is the latest White 
‘House move to replace career-officer ambassadors, 
Vho have been in their embassies only a. short tune. 
'With political appointees. In the association's view, 
S tiris practice threatens the on written but long-s t a n d in g 
rule that a U S. ambassador's normal tour of duty 
should be three years. . 

When Mr. Clinton became president, Secretary of 
State Warren M. Christopher promised that the new 
^administration would not use. ambassadorships as 
payoffs to campaign workers and contributors. 

Accordin g to the association, the ratio of career to 
ooncareer ambassadors now is about 3 to 1, but 
{officials -of' the association fear that the a dmims tra- 
Tjkm’s apparent tendency to ignore the three-year rule 
might begin a trend toward too marry ambassadorial 




stuation, be is heading to the University of New 
Mexico as a diploma t-in-resi deuce, in order to make 
way for Mr. Anderson. 

Mr. Anderson has known Mr. Clinton since the late 
1970s. Mr. Anderson also spent about four years in 
Tanzania and other parts of East Africa as a mission- 
ary and Bible translator. He speaks Swahili, which, 
along with English, is Tanzania's official lan g uage. 

“He is someone who obviously knows and cares a 
lot about Africa, and normally we would have no 
objection if be were given a posting when another 
Amcan embassy became vacant," said the associa- 
tion's president, FA (Tex) Harris. 

“But no matter bow much you know, it still takes 
months at best to become comfortable with an ambas- 




Sarto’s duties and Gt them to a particular country.

And in this case it makes absolutely no sense to pull

Africa and replace him with a rookie ” 

Mr. Andesson, contacted in Ar k ansas, would not 
comment until his confirmation process was complet- 
ed, most hkdy next month. He referred inquiries to 
the State Department, but neither officials there nor at 
the White House personnel office would cotnmenL 

The Anderson nomination was the third time in the 
past year that a career officer was bumped early to 
make way for a political appointee. 

W fltiam L Swing, another of the Africa bureau’s 
star performers, was replaced in Nigeria by Walter 
Carrington, a black officer who had worked on Afri- 
can affairs as a congressional staff member and Carter 
adminis tration official; John C. Kornbhim. the U.S. 
representative to the 53-nation Conference on Securi- 
ty and Cooperation in Europe, was dropped in favor 
of Sam Brown, an anti-war activist and former head of 
Action, the principal U.S. agency for administering 
volunteer service programs. 

The diplomats quickly made their way 

bade to postings. Mr. Swing became ambassador to 
Haiti. Mr. Komblum unexpectedly got an additional 

year in his job because partisan opposition has de- 
layed Mr. Brown’s confirmation. Mr. Komblum has 
been named the special U.S. envoy for Cyprus. 


Congress 
had to level with the public about 
just what medical care would be 
covered in a new system. So Lhcy 
cut a deal with Congress to estab- 
lish the system and a board having 
a great deal of power to cut it back 
if costs soared. 

Mr. Breaux's shift on employer 
payments was less decisive. He is. 
after all, one senator, not a political 
faction. But he moved on health 
care's toughest political issue, and 
his seal on the Finance Committee 
gives him influence: 

Republicans have been louder, 
but conservative Democrats have 
joined in their antagonism to mak- 
ing employers pay. When Mr. 
Breaux said be could support such 
a requirement if it left employers of 
10 or fewer workers free not to 
insure, that was a major break in 
the opposition ranks. 

Representative Richard A. Gep- 
hardt of Missouri, the House ma- 
jority leader, said Mr. Breaux's 
shift had altered the political situa- 
tion in that body, “I t means conser- 
vative Democrats can start talking 
about ideas lhat embrace universal 
coverage,” he said. 

He also said there was a lot or 
Hoase interest in the bill that the 
Senate Labor Committee was con- 
sidering. That legislation is a modi- 
fication of lhe Clinton plan put 
forward by Senator Edward M. 
Kennedy, Democrat of Massachu- 
setts. It would soften the impact on 
very small businesses and enable 
any American to join the Federal 
Employees Health Benefits Plan, 
and thus be offered the same insur- 
ance choices that members of Con- 
gress and government workers 
Eave.__ 

In the Senate, too, the movement 
by Mr. Breaux suggested that Dem- 
ocrats could get the bill out of the 
Finance Committee without Re- 
publican help if they have to. If 
they can solidify their own 1 1 votes 
that may be the surest way to at- 
tract some support from the 9 Re- 
publicans. 

On Sunday, one of those Repub- 
licans, Senator John H. Chafee of 
Rhode Island, predicted that the 
committee and Congress would 
adopt a universal insurance bill. He 
insisted, on NBC television, that 
universal coverage and the savings 
it should generate, were unattain- 
able without requiring either indi- 
viduals or employers to buy insur- 
ance. 

The public shifts were not the 
only important developments in 
Congress. The Finance Committee, 
one member reported, decided not 
to wait until the Congressional 
Budget Office measures Mr. Cha- 
fee’s bill, which would require indi- 
viduals to buy their own insurance, 
before it starts voting. 

But even that decision was a re- 
minder of a failure — the certain 
failure of ah committees except, 
probably, Mr. Kennedy’s, to meet 
the May 30 deadline they had an- 
nounced; perhaps imprudently.

Haiti Military Braces for Total Embargo 


By Howard W. French 

.Vrv Yttrk Times Sen- ice 

PORT-AU-PRINCE. Haiti — 
As a sweeping international embar- 
go lakes effect, Haiti's military 
leaders appear to be resolved to 
ride out the sanctions, convinced 
that the United States will not 
mount an armed intervention to 
unseal them. 

The broadened embargo, pushed 
by a Gin ton administration that 
has been increasingly exasperated 
by the Haitian military, covers all 
trade with the country except for 
medicines and certain foods. 

A United Nations ban on ship- 
ments of fuel and arms has been in 
place since October. 

The action is aimed at forcing 
the military to surrender power and 
make way for the return of the 


exiled president, the Reverend 
Jean- Bertrand Aristide. 

Five American naval vessels and 
a number of Coast Guard cutters 
are patrolling the waters around 


Haiti to enforce the embargo, but 
am the Do- 


the smuggling of fud from 
mini can Republic, which shares the 
Caribbean island of Hispaniola 
with Haiti, has remained active. 

[The United States said Monday 
lhat experts were reviewing with 
the Dominican Republic ways of 
enforcing new sanctions against 
Haiti, but acknowledged it current- 
ly had no way of plugging leaks in 
the embargo. Reuters reported 
from Washington. 

(Asked what would happen if the 
Dominican Republic refused to co- 
operate with the embargo, the State 
Department spokesman. Mike 
McCurry. said: “If they lack the 


will, then they face the resolve of 
the international community to see 
that they live up to their obligations 
and that they know there are conse- 
quences for not living up to those 
obligations."] 

Even in backing the wider em- 
bargo. which was enacted by the 
Security Council and went into ef- 
fect at midnight Saturday, the Clin- 
ton administration acknowledged 
that the measure might not be 
enough to bring about Father Aris- 
tide’s return. 

Haiti’s military leaders have de- 
fiantly used the two-week grace pe- 
riod between the Security Council's 
unanimous vote on May 6 and the 
application of the sanctions to put 
together a new civilian govern- 
ment, naming an 8 1 -year-old Su- 
preme Court justice, Emil Jonas- 
saim. as provisional president. 


Fingerprint Fraud Gives Aliens an Open Door 


AV* t’.iri Tmut .Civvj.t- 

WASHINGTON — Convicted criminals 
from oilier countries, or even terrorists, may 
have been yarned residency or other benefits 
in the United States because they were able to 
circumvent background checks with fraudu- 
lent fingerprints Nought front street vendors, 
according to an inspector general s report on 
the Immigration and Naturalization Service. 

The service requires fingerprints from ev- 
ery alien seeking naturalization or other fed- 
eral benefits, but. the Justice Department 
report noted, it is the responsibility of the 
alien to supply the prints because the immi- 
gration service no longer maintains a finger- 
printing operation of its own. 

Once the agency receives a set of prims, it 


sends them io the Federal Bureau of Investi- 
gation for background checks. 

When an alien applies for naturalization, 
the immigration agency directs him to local 
professional fingerprinting services. But 
when the person submits his prims, the agen- 
cy has no wav of knowing if they are genuine. 

The resulL according to the Inspector Gen- 
eral's Office of the Justice Department, is a 
growing illicit business in raise fingerprints 
that immigrants can buy from vendors, some- 
times for less than SlO. 

If the FBI cannot match the submitted 
prints to those in its records, the immigration 
agency may grant an applicant the benefits he 
is seeking, like residency or refugee status. 
Last year 866.3 1 3 aliens applied for federal 


benefits, and of those, about 9,000 convicted 
felons were turned down based on the FBI's 
findings. 

Because of the possibility of false prints, 
immigration officials said, they had no idea 
how many more applicants should have been 
rejected. 

The report recommends that the immigra- 
tion agency begin procedures to verify that 
fingerprints submitted by an applicant actu- 
ally belong to that person. 

After terrorists with criminal backgrounds 
exploded a bomb in an underground garage 
at the World Trade Center in New York in 
February 1993, the immigration agency was 
criticized for having let them slip 
the system.

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE* TUESDAY, MAY 24, 1994 


By Richard Reeves 

Special io ihe Herald Tribune 

The writer is a syndicated columnist whose 
mst recent book is “President Kennedy — Pro- 
ne of Rower.” 

For Americans familiar with D-Day. the 
‘landing" is a potent component of the event 
? n ihe Normandy beaches. It trigger?, flash- 
racp of Qls wading through ihe surf, rifles 
neid high as they splashed into North Africa, 
then Europe at Anzio, onto Japanese-held 
atolls in the Pacific — later even at Inchon in a 
new war, this one in Korea against commu- 
nism. 

These landings became an icon of America's 
liberating power, incarnating the notion of 
America making the world safe For democracy. 
The boys were bringing freedom to lands that 
had lost it or never known it. 

It remains a peculiarly American image, with 
legs carrying the story unto the tragic mistakes 
at the Bay of Pigs and Cam Ranh Bay and the 
tragicomedies in Grenada, then Somalia. 

For better or worse, it is always a story of an 
American crusade, when our society is sum- 
moned to moral mobilization. Thai makes it an 

S tion in a country that often appears on the 
of meltdown, with so much energy run- 
ning loose in the social reactor. 

Unlike nations that think their citizens be- 
long to them, this country belongs to the people 
who live here, to do something with. As a result, 
every American has a story, 250 million of 
them. But all the stories are the same, only the 
names, the dates and the scenes change. 

We each begin our story with the landing — 
at Plymouth Rock, at Ellis Island, in a slave 
ship from Africa, or at John F. Kennedy Inter- 
national Airport. 

Leaving aside "Native Americans," as we 


Many Americans, some in very high places, 
arc convinced that the United Slates cannot for

grants from Latin America and Asia. 

Maybe these critics are right, though I doubt 
it. Certainly they are in good company. Thomas 
Jefferson wanted a country of honest yeomen, 
different from the denizens of the “’teeming 
cities of Europe." Benjamin Franklin con£ 
plained about the Germans coming to Philadel- 
phia, saying; “Why should Pennsylvania, 
founded by the English, become a Colony of 
Aliens? . . . |Tbey) swarm imo our seitiemenis 
and by herding together establish their lan- 
guage and manners to (he Exclusion of ours." 

Similar current complaints come from our 
modern Franklins, as they would surely like to 


Fifty Years After D-Day 


These are the eigih and ninth articles 
in a series on the future if the 
American- Eu repeat t relatii ms ft ip. 
Subsequent articles will appear 
weekly until June 6. 


pushed them aside a couple of hundred years 
ago when they were railed "Indians " every 
man's and every woman's history begins with 
immigrant landings. All are tales told with 
variations on themes of hope and ambition and 
luck, or fear and suspicion of the new. 

My mother-in-law’s American story began 
with the trip from a tiny farm in the' west of 


Ireland to Ellis Island in 1929. Or so 1 thought, 
until we stood together lour years ago on mat 
island in New York Harbor and I asked her 
whether it was different from the way she 
remembered it. 

'Tve never been here before." said Bridget 
Ruddy Vesey. 

“What?” 

"My boat landed first on the West Side docks 
in Manhattan." she said "The English-speak- 
ing people were let off there. Then they took the 
shawl people to Ellis Island." 

The shawl people. She meant the Poles, the 
Russians, some I talians. Germans, the Jews. 
She went to join her sister in an Immigrant 
neighborhood in Woodside. Queens, a suburb 
of Manhattan. The immigrants living there 
were Irish and some Italians then. 

She still lives there, though her children and 
grandchildren are in Dallas and Los Angeles 
and Chicago. And Woodside is still an immi- 
grant neighborhood, filled with Koreans. Indi- 
ans and Pakistanis — "new” immigrants who 
saved and energized a tired neighborhood for 
the old Irish widows. 

So it goes for America, as it always has. 


see themselves, whose forebears were probably 
German. Probably German, it’s fair to say. 
partly because over the centuries Germany ap- 
pears to have been the origin of more immi- 
grants here than any other country and partly 
because it has always gone this way for Ameri- 
ca, with newcomers challenging earlier groups. 

These modern Franklins complain that the 
Mexicans and Vietnamese and the rest are 
making the United States into a "non-Europe- 
an" country. 

No doubL But at least as many social ana- 
lysis question what it is about Europe that is so 
sacred. Better to have America continuing to 
accept enough of die huddled masses to contin- 
ue to reflect the world as it really is. 

Perhaps it is better, ioo. to join the world by 
receiving exotics rather than send our own 
young people out to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Thai 
terrain is already too familiar. 

Maybe America as microcosm of the w orld is 
the surest way to enact our messianic message. 
Maybe instead of landing our values on others’ 
shores, we can bring the world imo our nation. 
Our movies do it, our cuisine does it — and it 
may be more than just shopping. It may be that 
our ability to manage our territory is’the way 
America goes ahead, h may be that our diversi- 
ty, our ethnic brew, is our source of wealth. 
George Gilder was at feast half right in saying; 
"I don’t know who lost tbe Vietnam War. but 1 
know who won it: We did because we got the 
‘boat people.’ ” 

No European would make that boast, not 
even about the pioneer stock that came home 
with the long tide of receding empire. Not the 
French about pieds noin. not British about 
Asians or Hong Kong Chinese, not Germans 
about their distant Eastern kith. Scandinavians 


see no added value in refugees, no matter how 
much more worldly and cosmopolitan they are 
than their hosts. 

The brawn of immigrant may be unavoid- 
able, but their brains are rarely considered to 
merit full membership in an oligarchy, however 
far democratized, where the rule of seniority is 
never far from people’s minds. In crisis, the 
last-corners can be jettisoned from the Europe- 
an vessel whereas America reacts by ignoring 
social frontiers to tap new energies. That funda- 
mental difference in our reflexes is particularly 
acute right now. 

Even as many Eurocentric Americans com- 
plain about new - manners and languages spoil- 
ing the American grain, they also seetn in many 
cases to be giving up on Europe. A series of 
articles on immigrants in Europe from the 
south and east into Britain, France. Germany 
Italy — "the old country" for us — started the 
month in the San Francisco Chronicle with this 
contempt-tinged headline: "Europe Trembles 
at the Shock of the New." 

America still does not tremble — at least not 
yet — but we do babble about tbe pros and coos 
of “diversity'’ and “multiculturalim’’ 

It’s a debate that Europeans feel they need 
not (or dare not) bother with for themselves. 
Some here agree. That phrase, “the shock of the 
□ew,” is so unwitting tribute to a landmark 
book of art history with the same title by 
Robert Hughes (an eminent American critic 
who immigrated here from Australia). In his 
most recent book, 'The Culture of Complaint," 
Mr. Hughes argues powerfully that American 
deference to the difference rather than to 
emerged excellence is making the fiery melting 
pot, crucible or the American dream, into a 
plastic simulation, mere virtual reality. 

True enough, there is a dynamic at work, 
with groups coalescing in self-idemification 
around a common claim to victimhood. The 
tactic copies the civil rights movement against 
anti-black discrimination, a defining experi- 
ence in the American decades since World War 
II. 

The United Stales is not. however, driven by 
philosophy or even sociology, no matter how 
erudite and plausible. Money is our fuel. It is a 
dwpjy ingrained image — society as a level 
pinball table, where newcomers stand practical- 
ly as good a chance as those who have been 
playing for a long time. 

In a casino, the bank is only as big as tbe pot 
provided by players. Americans no longer be- 
lieve that any part of them, as a group, can 
really weather economic havoc that engulfs the 
nation. So. they have generally been readier 
than other countries to gamble, again and 
again, on a big change. Only a new* wave can lift 
all boats. 

“Young Immigrant Wave Lifts New York 
Economy’ was tbe headline over a recent series 
of articles in Tbe New York Times, the domi- 
nant newspaper in a city whose 7J5 million 
inhabitants include 2.6 million foreign-born, 
including tbe new young families in Woodside. 
Queens. 

The truth is that pan of what still makes the 
U.S. flexible and immigration tolerable is that 
many, many business and financial players and 
commentators believe immigration is still prof- 
itable traffic. 

This belief has a respectable face, celebrated ! 


in these terms by Business Week magazine: 
“The U.S. is reaping a bonanza of highly edu- 
cated foreigners . . . [while] low-end immigrants 
provide a hardworking labor force to fill the 
low-paid jobs that make a modern service econ- 
omy run.* 

That quote fits a view in tbe country's leading 
magazine of history. American Heritage, in 
which the author Bernard A. Weisberger con- 
cluded; “We are different. ... Immigration is 
flesh of our flesh, and we need to be reminded 
of that.” 

He could get an argument, of course, particu- 
larly from politicians sincerely scapegoating 
immigration as a principal cause for our most 
recent economic dislocations. 

Pete Wilson, governor of California, is now 
attempting to sue ihe federal government for $3 
billion, his reckoning of the cost his state beam 
as the nation’s largest receiver of the new immi- 
grants from Central and Latin America. 

Indeed, if one is curious to see what ihe 
United States might look like in 50 years, he or 
she might go to UCLA, the University of Cali- 
fornia, Los Angeles, where I sometimes teach 
— and which a few anti-immigrant thinkers call 
“the University or Caucasians Lost among 
Asians.’’ 

Yes. Americans are going to look different 
from Europeans. 

Here, the new drives out the old. 

The great American difference is in how we 
raise our children — not to serve the family or 
the state or the tribe, but to leave it and move 
on. Americans raise their children to be on their 


On their own, they many whomever they 
please who pleases than. One study showed not 


long ago that more than half of the Gist genera- . 
tion of Asian women in the United States are 
mazrymg outside their race — - which - means 
that they are marrying Caucasian men. - 

The ideas erf Europe Mended to. make die 
good, old U.S.A. Tbe men and women rejected 
by Europe made us a great and energetic nation 
— Puritans, Scots and Irish driven away by the 
English, Protestant Huguenots driven from 
France and Jews from Spain. Italians from 
Calabria and Sicfly and the rest of the south' 
and the men oT learning driven to Harvard 
(along with the artists to Hollywood) by Hitler 
and the Nazis. 

Even if Europeans disdain American mon- 
grdism, Ameriea-tbe-Haven underpins the td-- 
erance Europe boasts, French intellectuals, no 
matter how notorious for anti-American pro- 
nouncements, remember the virtues of a nation 
open to talents when they fall into domestic 
disfavor. 

The first .best hope for a Jacques Attali, when 
it seemed the presidency would be lost, was 
Stanford. When Bernard. Kouchner was de- 
nounced by members of the French medical 
establishment hoping to block bis appointment 
in Paris, he announced be would go to Harvard 

Of course, Europe still appeals as a pleasant 
place to live, But, increasingly, Europe seems 
used up, at least by our tights. And fewer 
Europeans want to live where the streets once 
paved with gold are now lined by the homeless, : 

And American attention is elsewhere, look- 
ing west and south. Politically, the North 
American Free Trade Agreement is a self-inter- 
ested commitment to push Third World pover- 
ty bade as far as possible from the Rio Grande.

Mr. Eyal is dirtxtor of studies at

Soon after the collapse of the 
Berlin Wall, a high-ranking West- 
ern politician privately told his col- 
leagues that, from then on, the 
West's policy would be dictated by 
one major aim: a refusal to either 
export soldiers or import instability 
from the East. Few propositions 
seemed more compelling, yet lew 
were more foolish. 

Less than five years after the 
demise of communism. Western 
soldiers have been exported to Yu- 
goslavia in large numbers and to no 
particular purpose. More impor- 
tant, the disaster in the Balkans is 
now highlighting tbe historic dif- 
ference between .America and Eu-

only viable political entity. .And. 
while the Americans view multi cul- 
turalism as a source of strength, the 
Europeans dismiss it as the way to 
perdition. 

To be sure, the distinctions are 
not always so stark; despite de- 
cades of efforts. .America's melting 
pot is still a goal rather than an 
absolute reality. .And. by creating a

The historic week started with the fall 
of pome and continued with the D-Day 
assault and the Allied advance into 
Normandy. 

To commemorate these dramatic 
days, we will reproduce the seven front 
pages from the New 'fork Herald Tribune 
which chronicled the first week of the rebirth 
of liberty on the European continent. 

Fifty years later, you’ll follow the 
events day-by-day from the reports of the 
Herald Tribune's award-winning team of war 
correspondents. 

Don’t miss the international Herald 
Tribune’s special commemorative series 
starting Saturday, June 4th. 


American is a legal, not an ethnic 
concept). Europons hesitate to try 
similar ideas on their Continent 

In contrast to postwar visions of 
unity transcending old nationalis- 
tic enmities, Europe is experiencing 
two nationalist waves at the same 
time: one in the former Communist 
East and another in the the West. 
Despite their differing levels of in- 
tensity, both are eminently treat- 
able. but only if the West accepts 
that the end of the Cold War re- 
quires profound transformations 
on both sides of the former Iron 
Curtain. 

Multiethnic dreams are collaps- 
ing on both sides of Europe, and 
the initial post-Commtnrist opti- 
mism quickly gave way to dark pre- 
dictions about seemingly inevitable 
Darwinian struggles between na- 
tions and cultures. If the conse- 
quences of tbe nationalist challenge 
are ignored for much longer, if dis- 
putes are allowed to fester, the cu- 
mulative effects of impending con- 
flicts could dissolve both Europe’s 
security arrangements and the 
trans-Atlantic connection as welL 

The root of Eastern Europe's 
ethnic problems is dearly historic. 
In the West, the formation of states 
was gradual and lengthy; in the 
East it was sudden and fairly re- 
cent In the West suites were creat- 
ed by tbe progressive enlargement 
of a central government in the 
East countries were born out of the 
collapse of central authority. The 
results of this historic experience 
mode the East Europeans different 
from their Western counterparts. 

While in the West ethnic diversi- 
ty is now at least officially accept- 
ed. the East Europeans, born out of 
the collapse of multiethnic empires, 
still consder it a malaise. 

The differences are more appar- 
ent than real. Eastern Europe is 
doing better than expe c ted and the 
all-pervasive gloom on the Conti- 
nent is exaggerated. Since the end 
of the Cold War. three states, Yu- 
goslavia. the Soviet Union and 
Czechoslovakia, collapsed. Far 
from representing a pattern, they 
were tbe exception in Europe, rep- 
resenting countries in which the 
very ethnic identity of the state 
remained unresolved. Poland and 
the Czech Republic have no signifi- 
cant minorities at all; Romania, 
Bulgaria and Slovakia do, but they 
still are recognizable states for tbe 
Romanians. Bulgarians and Slo- 
vaks. And. despite the occasional 
chauvinist bailing, all have dis- 


that tbe West would do nothing to 
sustain their independence is not a 
strategy but, ratter, a justification 
for lack of vision and an all-perva- 
sive paralysis. The result can only 
be a redefinition of Europe's fron- 
tiers; Gone are the discussions 
about a "community" from Van- 
couver to Vladivostok, and, at least 
for the foreseeable future, Europe 
will end roughly where tbe old So- 
viet Union began. The urgent task 
is not to dither much longer on 
Eastern Europe simply because no- 
body knows wbai to do with Mos- 
cow. 

Left in its current state of sus- 
pended animation. Eastern Europe 


protecting minorities, a double 
acy from Cold War propaganda 
campaigns and from the domestic 
action 40 years ago abandoning the 
“separate bnt legal” notion in favor 
of the melting pot ideal Few other 
Western governments are prepared 
to countenance such an interna- 
tional protection system either: 
Decrying the fate of ethnic Hun- 
garians or Russians is one thing; 
devising a mechanism that protects 
everyone, including Corsicans, 
Basques or Irish Catholics, is quite 
another matter altogether. Propos- 
als abound, for “confederations,” 
associations and “partnerships,” 
but, in practice, tbe Europeans are 


ans like to think that they have 
reinvented the wheel; in practice, 
they have merely managed to go 
bade to the period before 1914, 
when borders were not so impor- 
tant and population controls barely 
existent. 

Even after the Maastricht Trea- 


ty, political legitimacy remains 
firmly , entrenched in the nation- 
state, not in the Brussels institu- 
tion, and the trends are becoming 
more, rather than less, accentuat- 
ed: Two-thirds of Community ; citi- 
zens participated in the 1979 Euro- 
pean Parfiament elections; barely 
over half did so a decade later. 

More important, the conduct of 
nationalist policies through the 
guise of internationalist rhetoric is 
no longer working. Western Eu- 
rope successfully assimilated large 
numbers of refugees at the end erf 
World War IL But none of the 
fundamental assumptions behind 
the existence of the nation-state 
have been overturned. To be a Ger- 
man today is still a question of 
blood, not one of residence: A Rus- 
sian dozen from Kazakhstan may 
have a better claim to a German 
passport than a Turk born and. 
bred in Germany. And everyone : 
still believes that only the migrant, 
and not the receiving country, 
benefits from, population - move- 
ments. 


For tbe United States, nationalism is a 
disease that must be fought at all costs; for 
tbe Europeans, tbe nation-state remains 
the only viable political entity.

borders may still be challenged.

ana of power ia their country's 
Parharoeni, and relations between 
Romania and Hungary, otherwise 
historic enemies, are "particularly 
ckse in the least expected field: 
military cooperation. The idea that 
the states of Central and Eastern 
Europe are about to plunge into 
ethnic violence is a myth. 

Nevertheless, the former Soviet 
empire may well be destined for 
further turmoil and the West still 
has no workable policy on Russia. 
Tbe idea that former Soviet repub- 
lics should remain independent but 


or mutter darkly about a “thousand 
Yugoslavian" for averting these 
dangers is perfectly feasible. Every- 
thing must start from a proper un- 
derstanding of the very nature of 
nationalism. Promising a radiant 
future on the basis of a glorious and 
often fabricated past, nationalism 
is not a disease, and therefore has 
no immediate and miraculous ewe. 
It cannot be wished away by reason 
alone, nor can it be easily distin- 
guished, as many UJS. politicians 
now tend to do, between its “be- 
nign” manifestation (allegedly 
good) and an “aggressive" one (in- 
variably bad). 

The countries of the region need 
additional reassurance: Tbe main 
task in Eastern Europe is to sepa- 
rate the fate of the minorities from 
that of the existing frontiers. Most 
of the problems that inflame na- 
tionalist passions start with seem- 
ingly trivial events, such as the re- 
naming of a street, or ihe closure of 
a minority school in a remote vil- 
lage. A minority supervision sys- 
tem should therefore be pedantic 
enough to tackle such issues, but 
also bold enough to address wider 
and more widespread tensions. Mi- 
norities should be loyal to their 
state of residence, but the authori- 
ties of that state should also accord 
them special group rights ho order 
to safeguard their existence. 

Officially, all Europeans accept 
this notion; in practice, however, 
nobody is willing to accept new 
political commitments. The result 
borders on a fans- On the one 
hand everyone asserts that human 
rights are universal- But. at the 
same time, everyone knows that the 
current human rights protection in- 
struments arc largely. irrelevant for 
Europe’s challenges. 

The East Europeans are told that 
they most “learn " from the West 
Europeans* experience and must 
wait until they have solved their 
problems before they can join a 
Europe “whole and free.” But how? 
The United States recoiled from 
the idea of treaties recognizing and 


doing everything and nothing in 
particular. 

West Europeans still like to be- 
lieve that nationalism is some thing 
that afflicts only their Eastern 
brethren. Far from it: While it is 
thriving in the East because no 
meaningful cooperation institu- 
tions are present there, nationalism 
is also gaming in the West because 
the present institutions appear to 
lack legitimacy and purpose. 

The European Community was 
created not because its component 
nations genuinely felt united, but 
because their leaders believed that 
the Community would gradually 
draw them dostar together. Given 
the historic circumstances, the tac- 
tic was correct, but tbe Union re- 
mained an exercise from above, a 
classic example of the bureaucratic 
approach to history. It succeeded 
beyond anyone's expectations, but 
its old game is now rip. A Union 
that cheerfully called itself "Euro- 
pean" could remain a club of a few 
rich states on the western tip of the 
Continent only as long as Europe, 
was divided; an organization that 
had on elected Parliament that (te- 
dded nothing and an andected 
commission that ruled on every- 
thing could only operate as long as 
it did not impinge too much on the 
national institutions of its member 
states. 

The Community's fathers 
thought that they had banished na- 
tionalism; in fact, ttey only man - 
aged. to render the idea intdkctual- 
ty less respectable, and even then, 
for only a relatively brief period. 

To all intents and purposes; 
those who like to call themselves 
European “federalists” are not 
dre am ing of an American model 
but, ratter, of a European nation- 
state writ large, complete with 
high]}' centralized powers and insti- 
tutions. And, the more their plans 
were derailed by the end of the 
Cold War, ihe more they persisted. 
The result was predictable: a. an-, 
tionaiist backlash: in member- 
states, and a set of -meaningless 
gestures, such as the adoption of a 
joint anthem, color-coordinated' 
customs corridors at airports and a 
angle passport cover, the Enropc- 


iter&js.nothing that would appeal 
to (he East Europeans marc than 
the process of Continental integra- 
tion, and even in tbe West, most of 
todays nationalists accept that 
there is little alternative to dose 
cooperation with neighbors. Euro- 
pean integration is not a zero sum 
game: Tbe question of form and 
substance is a proper and pertment 
subject of debate. - - 
- The Atlantic community that 
came into existence as a insult of 


Europe’* liberation from Nazi tyr- 
anny has reached the eod of history 
in the sense that the values of toler- 
ance and strong, durable democrat- 
ic traditions seem permanently en- 
trenched;, Europe's neo-Nazi 
movements, despite their current 
publicity, may represent nothing 
mere than thexetura of history as a 
comedy. Indeed, the absence of a 
dear scapegoat, such as the Jews, 
who contributed so much to Eu- 


rope’s diversity before the catastro- 
phe of World War n, is likely to 
make such movements merely 
ephemeral: Anti-Semi asm without 
the Jews has been tried before, but 
it is not a long-term proposition. 

However, as the example of Yu- 
goslavia indicates, tte Europeans 
still need US cooperation in tack- 
ling their current problems. Espe- 
cially in the East, the options are 
dean Either the borders are ren- 
dered less important through coop- 
eration and integration into exist- 
ing .structures, or. they will 
ultimately start shifting. And noth- 
ing isguaranieed to separate Amer- 


Publidy denying it all the way, of 
course, Western politicians still be- 
lieve that preserving ethnic purity 
is the test guarantee erf internal 
stability. Not even Germany’s 
Chancellor Helmut Kohl or 
France's President Francois Mit- 
terrand now dare talk about a fed- 
eral Europe. Instead, governments 
either try to introduce a “federal" 
Europe by stealth (usually at the 
price of ignoring tbe needs of the 
East Europeans, especially on 
trade) or pander to nationalism at 
home by sealing frontiers and con- 
trolling immigration, France, 
which prides itself on supporting 
“Europe," stiD claims to represent 
an ethnically pure nation, and, 1 

whfle ratifying the Treaty of Maas- 
tricht has introduced a curious I 
amendment toils constitution pro- 
claiming French as tbe country's 
only official language. And Brit-

JIHAD: Israel Asks Commitment

the spot. Mr. Tibi said that there 
was no need for a clarification and 
that Mr. Arafat had made the com- 
parison to show that Muslims kept 
their commitments. 

But the new disclosure generated 
harsh criticism from Israel’s right- 
ist critics of the peace accord. 

Police Minister Moshe Shahai, 
awaking for the government, told 
Parliament, “If terrorist attacks 
continue and Arafat continues 
making unfortunate statements 
that contradict the peace accord, 
we will continue talking to the Pal- 
estinians, but we will not imple- 
ment the next steps.” 

Environment Minister Yossi 
Sand c? fiie dovish Meretz bloc 
said that Mr. Arafat bad credied a 
“crisis of confidence" and that the 
PLO leader had “to declare that his 


If 

the 



grave and regrettable words in the 
in Johannesbu 


Johannesburg are null 


mosque 
and void.’ 

“He must declare agam his com- 
mitment to the accord with laud,” 
Mr. Sand said. 

Prime Minister Rabin, ques- 
tioned by reporters about Mr. Ara- 
fat’s statements, snapped, “Let him 
check who is (he stronger ” 

Dan Meridor, a moderate Likud 


member of Parliament, said: 
two or three days after signing tbe 
agreement, and having this ridicu- 
lous ceremony." Mr. Arafat then 
says, “‘I tefl you in advance I am 
_ to keep it,’ the question 
it is left of the government’s 
itions? The government’s 
Ruins. Nothing. I don’t 
how you can go on with the 
agreement if the other side teUs you 
very clearly, outspokenly, that they 
are not going to keep the agree- 
ment.” He added, “Are we really 
out of our minds?” 

Reflecting the concent of Israefs 
security establishment over the 
chaotic early days of the Palestin- 
ian police face deployment, Mr. 
Shahai, the police minister, added 
that the process could , not move 
ahead on the' ground “until the 
PLO proves hs ability to govern 
Gaza and Jericho.” 

According U) both Israeli and 
Palestinian officials, the Palestin- 
ian police in Gaza and Jericho are 
short of food, fuel and equipment 
Nabil Shaath, the chief Palestinian 
negotiator, brought about $300,000 
with him into Gaza last week, but 
Palestinians have said the shortages 
have prevented them from com- 
pletely taking control of Gaza and 
Jericho. ‘

m^^ucture, he said. 


But there is 5nn resistance from 
the city conservator, Andrzej Gac- 
zri, a 46-year-old architect who 
said that he had read outside opin- 
ions for and against the outlet He 
has twice rejected McDonald's re- 
quest, most recently on April 14. 

. “In' every version they have 
shown me. their plans impmge on 
the structure of the building, Mr. 
Gaczol said. “I told them if they 
Changed their plans and limited it 
to a coffeehouse, we wold proba- 
bly have no objottion-" 

Mr. Gaczol roles on the admissi- 
bility of changes to the city's budd- 
ings according to provisions of a 
national law protecting monu- 
ments and art. He insisted that his 
d erision had bees) made on narrow, 
not cultural, grounds. 

McDonald’s wanted to 

cover a large courtyard to erww a 


bmkfing was once the town 
house of PoHsh beer scions. During 
the Nazi occupation, it was the 
headquarters of the German mili- 
tary. It is now owned by a former 
Communist trading cooperative. 

Because the Germans renovated 
the buildmg, Mr. Gaczol said, it is 
in better structural shape than 
many others in the city. 

“McDonald’s exaggerates the 
contribution it makes to renovn- 
lions,” he said, (Esntisang the com- 


ihe dty by doing op the fa 
“Chi Fin n an ska Street, where they 
have their restaurant, the dty did

ing the foundations and the roof.” 

If McDonald's really wonts to 
contribute to tbe restoration of 
Krakow. Mr. Gaczol said, it should 
consider a more rundown property 
near the railroad station, which he 
described as better for business 
anyway. But he said that McDon- 
ald’s appeared to be interested in

cient. arcaded Hamidiya souk, 
agrees. With the right changes in 
the banking structure and the right 
opportunities, he said, “we can 
stand on our own feet" and live 
without being afraid of Israelis. 

The shift in attitude, spreading 
haltingly and quietly since Egypt 
made peace with Israel on its own 
in 1979, crystal zed for all the 
world when Prime Minister Yitz- 
hak Rabin and Yasser Arafat 
shook hands on their agreement for 
limited Palestinian self-rule at tbe 
White House in September. 

In signing their Declaration of 
Principles, Mr. Rabin and Mr. Ara- 
fat symbolized for the world the 
cracks in what for a half -century 
had been a keystone of Arab politi- 
cal, social, cultural and educational 
systems — and the pivot of at- 
tempts at Arab unity. That key- 
stone was the belief that Israel is an 
alien stale in the Middle East that 
usurped Palestinian land and had 
to be defeated to restore justice to 
the Palestinians and dignity to the 
Arab people. 

In the White House ceremony, 
the two reluctant prophets shep- 
herded 250 million Arabs toward a 
new perspective on Israel Israelis 
and themselves. 

“What Arafat did was a relief for 
me," said Fady Ghandour, bead of 
an express mail company in Jor- 
dan’s capital, Amman, where on 
dear nights the lights of Jerusalem 
twinkle on the western horizon. 
“Mentally, I am completely out of 
the mind-set that Israd is a taboo. 
The Declaration of Principles al- 
lowed the people who wanted to 
think this way to think this way 
openly.” 

The Israelis came, be said, “and 
we paid a brutal price.” 

“But we can’t change these 
facts,” he said. “Tbe past is the 
past We should look forward and 
establish a decent rivil society.” 

As Mr. Ghandour, tbe Amm a n 
businessman, suggested, dfctente 
with Israel portends a new dynamic 
within the Arab world. Absent a 
shared struggle against the Zionist 
foe, Arab states must reassess their 
often competitive relations with 
one other. Arab strongmen who 
have flourished as champions 
against the Israeli threat are likdy 
to find, it harder to distract their 
le from one-man rule and 
on personal liberties. 
Although dearly under way in 
peoples’ hearts and minds, the drift 
away from an era of conflict has a 
long way to go. load and Arab 
states, apart from Egypt, are still 
technically at war. 

The Arab League maintains its 
economic boycott, and restrictions 
on trade and travel continue. Radi- 
cal Palestinians and Islamic politi- 
cians still oppose Israel’s existence. 

And the possibility lingers that a 
wild card in Israeli or Arab politics 
could yet appear to sabotage or 
delay this tentative new dawn in 
the Middle East.

the Northeast still depressed and 


other areas, such as the Rocky 
Mountain area, experiencing 
booming growth. But there have 
been signs of a modest upturn late- 
ly in California, and economists 
expect (he strong national condi- 
tions increasingly to pull along the 
weaker areas. 

If these rosy forecasts prove ac- 
curate — and they basically are 
similar to those of Mr. Clinton’s 


administration and a number of 
Federal Reserve officials — the 
predicted lower growth rates would 
allow Mr. Clinton to run for re- 
election in 1996 with a strong eco- 
nomic record. 

By then, the economy would 
have been dose to full employment 
for three years, corporate profits 
and real after-tax incomes would 
have been rising strongly, accom- 
panied by only moderate inflation. 

Unexpected shocks could of 


course come at any time, but the 
forces currently at work in the 
economy appear likdy to produce 
slower growth rather than another 
recession in the foreseeable future, 
Mr. Meyer and the other forecast- 
ers said. 


One reason growth is going to 
slow is that America is close to 
exhausting one source of economic 
growth: cranking up idle factories 
and other productive facilities and 
hiring unemployed people to oper- 
ate them.

.YEN; South Korea Helped by Japan's Strong Currency 


Contumed from Page 1 

even the Japanese market which 
has been tough for Korean compa- 
nies to penetrate, is opening some- 
what. In the first quarter. South 
Korea's exports to Japan rose 12.4 
percent after having fallen for three 
straight years. 

The rise of the yen also has pro- 
duced benefits through other Asian 
countries, most of which have cur- 
rencies that are loosely pegged to 
tbe dollar. 

The mechanism works different- 
ly in different countries. Like South 
Korea, other relatively advanced 
countries, such as Taiwan and Sin- 
gapore, benefit from having their 
products gain a price advantage 
against Japanese ones. 

But the effect is somewhat small- 
er than in South Korea, some econ- 
omists said, because these coun- 
tries have fewer heavy industries 
that compete directly with Japan. 

For the less advanced countries 
of Southeast Asia and for China, 
the benefit of the high yen comes 
from Japanese companies them- 
selves, which are shifting their 
manufacturing to these countries to 
escape the high costs in Japan. 

Still, some economists say the 
importance of the yen’s rise should 
not be exaggerated. “Certainly it 
has had some positive impact, but I 
don’t think that it's a major factor " 
said Nam Sang Woo, senior fellow 
at the Korea Development Insti- 
tute, a governmen (-sponsored re- 
search organization. 

Mr. Nam said that the strong yen 
only helped exports, which account 
for 25 percent to 30 percent of 
South Korea’s economy. Some of 
that increase has resulted from Lhe 
UJ>. economic recovery and fast 
growth in Asia. He said the main 
reason for South Korea's recovery 
was a cyclical resurgence in invest- 
ment by companies m new plam> 
and equipment. 

Others noted that the yen’s rise 
was a mixed blessing. Industry in 
South Korea is highly dependent 
on advanced components and pro- 
duction machinery from Japan — 
such as robots and machine tools, 
wafer steppers for making comput- 
er chips and optical pickups for 
compact disk players. 

With a stronger yen. those Japa- 
nese products, for which there Ls 
often no substitute, become more 
expensive. 

Because of this, as South Korea’s 
overall exports grow, iis imports 
from Japan grow. In the first quar- 


ter of this year, imports from Japan 
rose 21.6 percent, almost twice as 
much as South Korea’s exports to 
Japan. 

In the rest or Asia as well, the 
expansion of manufacturing by 
Japanese companies means greater 
imports of Japanese components 
and production machinery, provid- 
ing what Mr. Kwan called a "built- 
in stabilizer" for Japan's exports. 


yen is that many companies in 
Asia, as well as Asian governments, 
have debts denominated in yen. As 
the yen has gained strength, pay- 
ments erf interest and principal 
have become more onerous in 
terms of tbe local currency. 


In a few parts of the economy, 
such as the steel industry, compa- 
nies have so much business they are 
turning down orders. And there are 
scattered reports of shortages of 
skilled workers in several parts of 
the country. 


Overall, the pool of unemployed 
idle on 


Even though the strong yen hurl 
the competitiveness of Japanese 
products, the volume of Japan’s ex- 
ports to East Asia climbed last 
year, while the volume of expons to 
Europe and the United States de- 
clined. 

Japan’s trade surplus with East 
Asia exceeded its surplus with the 
United States last year for the first 
time. 

Another drawback of the higher 


Korean officials said problems 
still remained in their economy. 
Spurred by the shift toward democ- 
racy in the late 1980s. which gave 
new voice to workers, wages have 
more than doubled in the past five 
years, Mr. Lira said 


workers and idle production facili- 
ties is still large enough to fuel pan 
of the nation’s growth, at least for 
the rest of this year, the forecasters 
said 


An average Korean auto worker 
produces only 20 to 25 cars a year, 
while a Japanese worker produces 
45, according to an analysis by 
Weekly Chosun, a Korean maga- 
zine; Were it not for lower wages 
and cheaper raw materials, Korea 
would not be able to compete with 
Japan. 


But with that pool of unused 
labor and capital so diminished 
the second source of national eco- 
nomic growth — the normal in- 
crease in the size and productivity 
of the U.S. work force — will have 
to provide the additional resources 
needed While there is disagree- 
ment over exactly how much po- 
tential growth the combination of 
an expanding work force and rising 
productivity offers, the estimates 
range from 14 percent to 3 percent 
a year, with most analysts clustered 
at the low end 


Monday that 49 dissident Bud- 
dhists had threatened to commit 
sukade by self-immolation next 
Wednesday but that their leader 
had appealed io them not to do so, 
Reuters reported in Paris. 

The Vietnamese government de- 
nied there had been any suicide 
threat and also denied a report by 
the International Buddhist Infor- 
mation Bureau in Paris that four 
dissident monks were on hunger 
strike in prison. 

The Buddhist information bu- 
reau said 49 Buddhist monks, nuns 
and laypeople had written to their 
leader, Thich Huyen Quang, asking 
for permission to bunt themselves 
to death on Wednesday, anniversa- 
ry of the Buddha’s death.

Coping With Derivatives 


Derivatives have come to symbolize every- 
■hing that Washington finds spooky, incom- 
prehensible and menacing about the financial 
markets. Congress, bruised by die costs of 
cleaning up the S&L fiasco, wonders uneasily 
whether the rapid growth of trading in deriva- 
tives will produce similar grief. At Congress’s 
request, the General Accounting Office has 
published a report that is. on the whole, re- 
assuring. It suggests some improvements in 
regulation but rings no alarm bells. As it says, 
derivatives serve a very useful purpose. 

“Derivative” is the current term for a fam- 
ily of contracts — futures, options, swaps — 
that have been traded for decades. The GAO 
came across one illustration in a bank whose 
customers in Japan wanted to nail down the 
price that they would pay (in yen) for oil some 
months is the fumre First the bank went into 
the commodity markets to buy futures con- 
tracts fin dollars) for the delivery of the oil at 
those future dates. Then it turned to the 
currency market to buy yec futures. Compa- 
nies use derivatives to insulate themselves 
from sudden swings in prices of commodities 
like oil and. more commonly, currency ex- 
change rates and interest rates. 

Derivatives can also be used for pure specu- 
lation. Toe GAO warns that in a crisis, federal 
intervention might be necessary. Does that 


mean that derivatives ought to be discour- 
aged? No. In a crisis — set off by. sav, a leap 
in interest rates — it is better to use the 
financial system as a shock absorber than to 
have the impact fall directly on other indus- 
tries where jobs and production are at stake. 

There is room to improve the regulation. 
This business is carried on mainly by big 
hanks, but also by securities dealers and in- 
surance companies. American banks are regu- 
lated pretty heavily, securities firms less so 
and insurance companies not at ail by the 
federal government, only by the states’. The 
GAO thinks that Congress ought to require 
uniform federal regulation of all the deriva- 
tives dealers. More brcadly. it ought to recog- 
nize that banking, securities dealing and in- 
surance are no longer separate businesses. 
That also raises the question whether banks 
ought to be permitted to use federally insured 
deposits to finance derivatives. If it were not 
permitted, the risks to the taxpayer would be 
reduced — not a bad thing. 

But congressional legislation alone w-ill 
not be effective. The trading in derivatives is 
global. Competent overnight will require. 
like much else in the emerging financial in- 
dustry. cooperation among the governments 
of all the rich countries.

Welfare Reform Options 


Line up the three major plans for welfare 
reform and they appear, at first, nearly in 
sync. President Bill Clinton, the Mainstream 
Forum of conservative and centrist House 
Democrats and the House Republicans pro- 
pose transforming welfare from a system that 
writes checks to a system that puts recipients 
to work. Look a g ain and note this oddity: The 
centrist Democrats as well as Republicans want 
to spend more money than die president. That 
should require no ideological war to resolve. 

But look more closely and differences 
emerge that cannot be ^sily bridged. The 
president's plan is shaping up as the only one 
of the three that combines compassion with 
sensible obligations. 

The three plans would provide cash assis- 
tance for a temporary period, during which 
recipients would undergo training, education 
and job search. Then the able-bodied would be 
required to work at subsidized private- or pub- 
licrsecior jobs. Key differences arise over how 
tight to make work requirements, bow to cover 
the costs and what support services to provide 
the poor and near-poor. The president’s plan — 
whose final details will not be known until next 
month — would be firm but Fair. The other two 
plans are unacceptably harsh and punitive. 

Limiting subsidized jobs. The Mainstream 
Forum would require, and the Republicans 
would authorize, states to limit the duration 
of government-subsidized jobs. Once the time 
limit expired, recipients would have to fend 
for themselves. President Clinton has not yet 
decided whether to take this misstep. He should 
resist. Parents who train and work faithfully 
should not be abandoned if. for no fault of their 
own, they cannot find unsubsidized work. Re- 
member. young children are at risk. 

Making immigrants pay. The president 
would raise most of the S9.5 billion needed to 
pay for his plan by permanently extending the 
period, from three years to five, during which 
sponsors are financially responsible for keep- 
ing immigrants (hey help bring to the country 
off welfare. That is reasonable. But the Main- 
stream Forum bill (S18 billion) and the Re- 


publican bill (S 12 billion) go much too far — 
stripping legal immigrants of welfare benefits. 
That would be an unconscionable blow to 
immigrants whose sponsors fail by the wayside. 

Paying for child care. The working poor — 
parents who earn barely enough to escape 
poverty — need help paying Tor child care 
while they work. Otherwise they will be 
tempted, if not forced, to go back onto wel- 
fare. The Mainstream Forum faces up to this 
need: the Republicans ignore it; Mr. Clinton’s 
plan lies disappointingly in between. 

Discouraging teen pregnancy. The Main- 
stream Forum would cut off additional aid to 
mothers who give birth while on welfare and 
would require minors receiving cash assis- 
tance to live at borne. The Republicans would- 
impose similar prohibitions and worse; they 
would, for example, cut off cash assistance to 
teenage mothers of illegitimate children (al- 
though states could pass legislation to rein- 
state such benefits) and withhold full benefits 
until paternity was legally established — a 
process that can take a year or more. Mr. 
Clinton favors less onerous conditions, which 
is justified because once welfare rules are 
straightened out. recipients will have all the 
incentive they need to act responsibly. 

Other welfare plans will emerge — includ- 
ing a promising one sponsored by Represen- 
tative Robert Matsu i. Democrat of Califor- 
nia. Whether the differences between the 
plans lie across an unbridgeable divide will 
not be dear until Congress begins debate. 

For evejyone’s sake, the advocates might 
focus less on what drives them apart than on 
their shared conviction, elegantly expressed 
by Professor Christopher Jencks of North- 
western University: “When people cannot 
find steady jobs, they can seldom afford to 
link their self-respect to their work.” 

Each plan seeks to guarantee welfare par- 
ents steady jobs, their children working par- 
ents as role models — and thereby help these 
families bolster the self-respect that lies at the 
core of responsible behavior.

A Spring to Remember 


It says something about humankind’s natu- 
ral pessimism that blizzards and terrible win- 
ters are long remembered, even by their years. 
buL glorious springs are not. Americans still 
unborn in Northeastern states are likely to 
hear in decades to come about the record 
snowfalls that blew in with winter ’93. But 
what about the sequel? Why not a toast to the 
splendid spring of "94? 

Rarely in memory have bulbs and wild- 
flowcrs, shrubs and fruit trees blazed so 
brightly, or bloomed so long. First came 
purple and saffron crocuses in March, fol- 
lowed by a veritable sunburst of daffodils. 
Next were tulips, mingling with blazing 
plumes of forsythia. Lawns never seemed 
greener, and carpets of periwinkle abounded 
with ingratiating blue flowers. 

By May it was. clear that this was a spring 
with a difference. Dogwoods seemed to jump 
to attention with an effusion of while and 
pink blossoms. Among perennials, bleeding 
hearts are early bloomers, and they seemed 
anxious to keep up with their neighbors. 
Lilacs vied with cherry blossoms not only in 
suburban front yards but in Manhattan’s 
Central Park and in the Bronx’s Hudson 
River showcase. Wave Hill. 

Folk wisdom instructs that snow is the 
poor man’s fertilizer, a carpet that protects 
plants from deep frost. But professionals 
have another explanation. Tins is a “magni- 
ficent spring," says Jean Wells, a landscape 
architect in Easton, Connecticut, because it 
was unusually cool. “That’s why the tulips 
and daffodils lasted so long.” 

The downside is that poued trees on urban 


terraces and broadleaf evergreens suffered 
from the cold and bitter winds. More blooms 
delight the eye, but more pollen means more 
hay fever. And gnats and mosquitoes also 
nourish in wet cool weather. 

There are other quirks in wbat Marco Polo 
Stufano. Wave Hill’s director of horticulture, 
calls an “incredible" spring; “It’s been hit or 
miss in our herb gardens. Some plants that 
don’t winter over surprised us by aiming 
back, but others did very poorly because their 
roots were damaged by frosts.” 

Still judging from the dinner table buzz, 
weekend gardeners are too dazzled by May's 
explosion to worry about the downside. 
Spring ’94 deserves a sparkling cider toast 
and a Memorial Day offering of new plants 
for springs yet to come.

Other Comment 

A Tide Toward Gan Control 

Americans feel threatened by crime these 
days because their instincts and experiences 
tell them they are not safe. And they are not 
calmed by recent crime statistics that suggest 
a 3 percent drop in serious crimes and a 1 
percent drop in violent crimes. They just do 
not believe the figures; they believe their 
instincts. The tide toward effective gun con- 
trol won’t calm down soon. America has not 
been acting responsibly with guns. Thai ab- 
solutely must change. '

Join Germany’s Effort to Widen Europe 


H ELSINKI —The prospect of a widening of 
the European Union to include four new 
members from the beginning of 1995 has intensi- 
fied the debate on decision making in Brussels. 
As in all institutions that have existed for any 
length of time, the insiders want to make sure 
that the newcomers will not be able to upset the 
way the place is run. This effort is what jn 
European Union jargon is called “deepening,” 
More important than institutional arrange- 
ments, however, is the underlying balance of 

There is a crucial difference 
between Germany’s past 
imperialist campaigns and 
Us present Ostpolitik. 

cower. Until now the Union has revolved around 
the Paris- Bonn axis. This functioned well as long 
as Bonn was the capital of a West European state 
— an economic giant but a political dwarf. But 
after unification, Germany no longer is a West 
European state — it is a European power, once 
again at the center of the Continent, with Berlin 
as its future capital. German leaders swear that 
they will remain faithful to their French allies, 
but strains will be inevitable. 

The German role in the recent negotiations on 
the accession treaties with Austria, Finland. Nor- 
way and Sweden was a portent of things to come. 
German diplomats twisted arms mercilessly to 
make sure that agreement would be reached in 
time to enable the new members to enter the 
Union at the start of 1995. Subsequently, insis- 
tent German lobbying was behind the favorable 
vote on the accession treaties in the European 
Parliament in Strasbourg. 

The entry of these four countries will not in 
itself change the fundamental character of the 
European U nion. They are all stable democracies 
and relatively affluent market economies. They

will contribute to the Union budget more than 
they will receive from it All have accepted the 
Maastricht treaty without reservations, includ- 
ing its provisions on a common foreign and 
security policy. The former neutrals no longer 
have inhibitions in this regard. 

The reason why the Germans have been so 
anxious to prevent delay in admitting these four 
countries goes beyond the intrinsic importance 
of the new members. Their entry is the neces- 
sary first step in an eastward expansion or the 
Union. The accession of Austria and the three 
Nordic countries will shift the Union’s geopo- 
litical focus in this direction. 

Vienna is the historical center of a region that 
includes the ancient European citiesof ] 

co rn- 
on a 

clear day one can almost see the coastline of 
Estonia. The entire Baltic region will be em- 
braced by the European Union. 

This look at the map reveals what the logical 
next step would have to be: Hungary, Poland, 
the Czech Republic and possibly Slovakia and 
Slovenia, as well as Estonia, Latvia and Lithua- 
nia, will have to be drawn into the Told of the 
European Unioa. Obviously, these countries 
have a long way to go before they will be able to 
assume the economic responsibilities of mem- 
bership. But if the will exists, a way can be 
round to bring them into the framework of 
political integration without much delay. 

The German interest, shared by the four pro- 
spective new members, in such an expansion of 
the Union is obvious. Without it, Germany will 
remain a frontline stale, always exposed to the 
fallout from the turmoil and conflicts in the 
eastern half of Europe. Against this, an enlarge- 
ment of NATO would not provide sufficient 
defense. It would offer the Central and East 
European countries a tranquilizer, not a curl 


Only a gradual extension of the concept of 
economic, social and political integration so sue- _ 
cessfully applied in Western Europe can promote 
stability and prosperity in lbe eastern half of 
Europe and thereby create a reliable and lasting 
basis for the security of both halves. 

Such a vision of the future of the European 
Unioais consistent with its declared purpose. It 
has always claimed to be “Europe.” 

During the Cold War it had no choice bat to : 
remain an exciusrvdy West European institution. 
Now at last it has an opportunity to make good 
the claim implied by its name. 

But on the whole the Unioa remains emo- 
tionally and intellectually unprepared for This ' 
formidable challenge. 

It is one thing To accommodate the Nordic 
countries and Austria; that can be managed 
within the existing system. Letting in a host of 
Central Europeans and Balts would require a 
fundamental restructuring of existing institu- 
tions — an undertaking repugnant to estab- 
lished bureaucracies. 

More important, a further widening would be 
expensive. No new net contributors are in sight. 
Every extra member would compete with the . 
Mediterranean states for a share of EU resources. 
Solidarity would be strained to the utmost. 

Yet stagnation could be worse than the cost of 
expansion. It could endanger the. original pur- 
pose of The European Community, which was to 
tie Germany into a web of interdependence with 
its Western neighbors. 

Germany’s Drang nach Osten understandably 
makes many people in Western Europe fed un- 
easy. There is, however, a crucial difference be- 
tween Germany's past imperialist campaigns and 
its present Ostpoutik: Germany today is acting 
in toe framework of the European Union. . 

It is in the interest of the other member stales 
to make sure that Germany wifi con tinueto do 
so. litis they can best achieve by joining Ger- 
many in an effort to widen the Union into a 
indy European institution. - -'

Shelve the Federal Dream and Stand Europe Up 


L ONDON — If Rodin were mak- 
t Lag a statue of today’s Europe. 
it would be a crouched figure gazing 
spellbound into its navel, one hand 
frozen in a frenzied scratching of 
the head. This is bow Europe looks 
to outsiders. It will not do, because 
things are happening in the rest of 
the world that require action. 

It especially will not do if Eu- 
rope's self-absorption continues, as 
seems all too likely, right up to 1996, 
when the 12 countries of the Euro- 
pean Union plan another meeting 
to contemplate their future. As it 
approaches next month's election of 
a new European Parliament, Eu- 
rope should start to make up its 
mind what sort of place it is. and 
what it wants to do in the world. In 
short, what it is there for. 

One answer to that question 
should for the moment be pul firm- 
ly back onto the shelf. A surprising 
number of politicians, mostly gen- 
tlemen of a certain age. still want 
the 1996 meeting to move Europe 
yet another stage down the road of 
“ever closer union" toward the Eu- 
ropean federation — the single 
United States of Europe — that 
they have so long dreamed of. 

It has beat dear since the row 
about the Maastricht treaty a cou- 
ple of years ago that this is not a 
workable proposition, because most 
of the people of Europe do not yet 
want that sort of Europe. The elder- 
ly dreamers chose to nay no atten- 
tion. They have now been remind- 
ed, with a jolt. 

In a pod conducted bv MORI and 
published in The European, a 49-to- 
32 percent majority of these asked 
said they were against a European 
federation. Only four countries — 
Belgium and a uio of southern aid- 
reedven. Greece, Italy and Spain — 
produced majorities in favor, and of 


By Brian Beedham 


those probably only the Belgians, 
who no longer have any real sense of 
national identity, honestly meant iL 

The biggest “no" was not, as most 
people would have expected, in is- 
land Britain. The Dutch and the 
Danes were even more hostile. And. 
decisively, both Germany and 
France were in the anti-federation 
camp. The three peoples on whose 
consent any new European struc- 
ture must be built — Germans, 
French, British — are all against a 
federal sort of structure. 

It is astonishing that the Europe- 
an Union's own opinion poll. Euro- 
barometer, has never asked people 
what they ihinic about the federal 
idea. Weil, on second thought, not 
so astonishing. The Buro-poOsters 
presumably did not want to have to 
lake “no” for an answer. 

Let it be repeated that there is 
nothing wrong in principle with a 
federal Europe.. If or when that is 
what a majority of the people in all 
its component parts clearly want, a 
federal Europe there should be. (It 
would be a huge pity if this new 
Europe turned its buck on America, 
thereby destroying the Atlantic 
partnership that could otherwise 
have shaped the 21st cenUiTy, but 
that is another maiter.) 

Without that necessary majority 
among its peoples, a federal Europe 
will not stand. Itwfl] be the artificial 
creation of a group of politicians 
and intellectuals, a superstructure 
without an infrastructure, a house 
built on sand. That sort of thing 
inevitably collapses, to the pain and 
fury of those living in it Yet this is 
what the would-be federalists of 
19% are trying to erect 

If the “ever closer union’’ cannot 
come any closer until the people of 


Europe want it. is time no other 
idea that can send a tingle down 
European spines in the nrid- 1990s? 
Of course there is. It is time for 
Rodin’s crouched figure to stand up 
and face the world. The nonfederal 
Europe that is the only possible sort 
of Europe in the next couple of 
decades needs a foreign policy. 
Here is work that needs to be done, 
a cause to rally people around. 

Europe needs a policy for coping 
with the fanatic distortion of Islam 
that it may soon be confronting in 
North Africa, if Algeria's rebels win 
the war in that country. 

Europe has to do what it can — 
which may not be much —to rescue 
Russia from its threatened social 
explosion, without encouraging 
Russians to think that they can once 
again boss their neighbors around. 

Europe should raise its eyes to 
what is happening in Asia, most ur- 


most certainly inchide.quitealoi of 
currently rather poor countries be- 
tween the present Union and Russia: . 

This in him vriD require great 
changes in some of the policies that 
Euro-dreamers have gram attached 
to. The Common Agricultural Policy 
will not survive the arrival ofPo- 
LamPs fanners. More regional aid for 
the needy East implies less for the. 
outstretched hands of Southern Eu- 
rope. And a burner Europe is less 


likefytobe 


i matter. A tighter organization 
is not, we now blow, what, most 
Europeans want And a European 
Union that really believes in full 
Europeanness will not want to tilt, 
its favors toward one lot of Europe- 
ans and away from others. 

Here is a program /or serious Eu- 
ropeans in non month’s election. 
The 1996 Intergovernmental Con* .

European get-together — should

all. the definition of Europe itself. 


rea is about to make “oonprolifa^ 
non” a word for the history books. 

But there is something even more 
basic that Europe has to do. First 
and foremost the European Union 
has to remember what its name 
means. The Union is intended to be 
a craning together in peace of all the 
formerly disputatious peoples of 
Europe, or at any rate as many of 
them as share the belief in a plural- 
ist society (which may be a neces- 
sary condition of being able to work 
smoothly together). It cannot in- 
tend to remain merely a club of one 
part of Europe. Its definition of 
itsdf has to be pan-European. 

This means bang ready to admit 
to membership any European coun- 
try that wants to join and truly 
passes the pluralist tesL That may 
never include Russia, but it will af- 


Not every European is going to 
agree about all of those dungs. That 
is no impediment to what needs to 
be done. We have just been remind- 
ed that the Europe of the 1990s does 
not wish to be- a rigid monolith. 
Those European countries which 
can agree upon joint action in the 
world — and most of them can agree 
about many things —will act togeth- 
er. Those which do not agree will 
stand aside. That is how the foreign 
policy of a nonfederal Europe 
should be. Let us start to make sure 
that that is what 19% produces.

Urgent UN Measures Can Abate the Rwa 



G eneva — in the past six 
weeks, the world has witnessed 
in Rwanda a human tragedy of horri- 
fying dimensions.. Hundreds of thou- 
sands of civilians have been killed, 
often after bring tortured. 

Many thousands have disap- 
peared. Perhaps 2 mHiicn have been 
forced tc fiee their homes. Thousands 
more remain trapped between battle 
lines, or have been forcibly detained. 
Many are in hiding, f erring for their 
lives. Disease and famine threaten 
those who have escaped death. 

On Tuesday, the UN Commission 
on Human Rights opens an emergen- 
cy session in Geneva, to respond to 
this tragedy. The meeting only the 
third such special session since the 
commisson was formed in 1946. can 
help step the incessant Tattle of death. 

1 took cilice on April 5. One day 
later, the crisis in Rwanda erupted. 
While peace and security are the re- 
sponsibilities or the Security Council, 
the scale of human rights violations 
in Rwanda was such that there was a 
need for action even before peace and 
security could be fully guaranteed. 

! fell that a monitoring of the hu- 
man rigbis situation in Rwanda with 
the consent of all those in positions of 
authority could help deter further vi- 
olations. or at feast allow the interna- 
tional community >0 monitor individ- 
ual traeedies and establish 
responsibility. 1 viewed Rwanda as a 
litmus test rif the international com- 
munity’.* willingness to act against 
massive humin rights violations. 

After consul ting the secreiary-gen- 
eral. 2 undertook an urges t mission to 
Rwanda early this month. There I 
met representatives of the armed 
forces of the Rwaadan Patriotic 
Front and of the interim gpvernmenL 
I solemnly appealed to both par- 
ties. and. through Rwandan Radio, to 
all those in positions of power to 
immediately stop the massacres and 
other human rights violations.

Effective international action is ur-

The Commission on Human 
Rights is the principal UN body en- 


trusted with the protection of human 
rights. The commission and tire Cot- 
ter for Human Rights have saved 
lives, quietly but effectively, over the 
years. But this new crisis transcends 
anything we have seen. 

When the commissiofl meets here 
Tuesday and Wednesday, it should 
consider appointing a special rappor- 
teur to e xamin e all human rights as- 
pects of the situation, including 
causes and responsibilities. Such a 
rapporteur should be assisted by a 
team of human rights field officers in 
close cooperation with the UN Assis- 
tance Mission in Rwanda and other 
UN agencies and programs. 

The commission should consider 
endorsing the suggestion that future 
UN efforts airbed at conflict resolu- 
tion and peac*-bu3diag in Rwanda 
be accompanied by a strong human 
rights component built on a broad 
program of human rights assistance. 

Every effort must be made to bait 
the human rights violations, or to 
achieve at least a temporary cessation 
of hostilities so. that humanitarian 
assistance can reach the 2 million 
displaced persons, and others in 
need. All those who are trapped or 
detained in places they consider un- 
safe must be able to move to areas of 
safety, with the assistance and pro- 
tection of the United Nations, 

The authors of the atrocities must 
be made aware that they cannot es- 
cape personal responsibility. They 
must be mode to realize that all rele-

Cambodia 


By James D« Koss 

Cambodian electorate braved the 
threat of Khmer Rouge attacks and 
cast ballots in the country s last 
contested electioti in decades. Tn e 
subsequent formation of a common 
government and introduction ora 
democratic constitution convinced 
the- international community that 
the United Nations peacekeeping 
operation h«i<r been a success. 

The little attention given to Cam- 
bodia. sinc e then has focused on the 
government’s military struggle 
against the Khmer Rouge. Yet there . 
is a deeper malaise in the country s 
politics. A year after the vote. Cam- 
bodians are beginning to wonder 
why they went to the trouble. 

The royalist party under Prince 
Norodom Ranariddh won the dec- 
tions by a small but significant mar- 
gin. After A post-election rebellion 
hy high - ranVin g members of the in- 
cumbent Cambodian People's Par- 
ty, KingNorodom Sihanouk spon- 
sored apolitical “compromise” that 
divided ■ authority . evenly between - 
the two parties. (The then Commu- 
nist CPP was installed in' office in 
Phnom ,Bsnh' in. 1979. by the Viet- 
namese^ed invasion force tltet top-' 
pled the Khmer Rouge regime.) - 

Despite the formal arrangements 
after we 1993 elections, a genuine 
.transfer of power from the CPP to 
the coalition government has yet to 
occur. WhBctossingtbe royalists the 
formes of the Finance Ministry and 
the Foreign Ministry,- the CPP re-, 
tains control of the.lnterior Minis-. 
tiy, witb its abusive State security* 
apgaiatosr and the Justice Ministry, 
which exerts heavy authority over 
' the nationV courts. The CPP also: 
tkmrinatesthfc armed forces and the 
. national bureaucracy. 

In. the provinces the imbalance of 
power is evenisreater.^ The CPP dnti- . 
rally split up. CambcxSaY 2f gover- 
norships, but kfcpt the plum prov- : 
inces-for itsdf. More important, it' 
lias tenaciously hddon jo all local' 
appointments, from powerful district 
chiefs to police and teachers. The 
corruption and human rights^buses 
.that permeated the prcvious L CPP>e- . 
gone continue imder the roafitibn. . . 

Tbe royafists are at least "half re-^ 
sponsjblefor thdrdire predicament." 
Their party wra the 1993 elections,- 
partly on the strength of extravagant - 
campaign promises and a perceived.', 
commitment to good government.", 
Yet Hlias done nothing to earn con- 
tinued support. 

Instead of promoting reforms in 
government, too many royalist offi- 
cials have been content to grab their 
"^’rabse^ Wfib hai« r 


willing to challenge the status 
quo, such as Sam Ramsy. the capa- 
ble finance minister, have been re- 
buked by leaders in thrir own party. ^ 
In thepfovinces. CPP offices bustle 
with activity, legal -be otherwise/ 
while royalist party offices stagnate. 

The tight for control off the Na- 
tional Assembly may prove to be the 
royalists’ last stand. Public debate 
has been avoided for the sake of 
“national reconciliation,'’ and so far 
resolution of key issues has all gone 
the CPFs way.- . ;; 

Th e meet notable; and outrageous, 
is the CPFs unconstitutional quest to 
seal in the assembly two leaders of 
last year's rebdEon. Laws sharply re- 
stricting press freedom mkl judicial! 
independence ore in the offing. These 
issues are not being dedded % votes 
■ or political compromise* but by a 
combination of CPP bullying and . 
royalist appeasement 

A year after the elections, Cam- 
bodians should Ted justly proud of* 
the enormous accomplishments that 
have been achieved. A largely free 
press reports critically -on govern-, 
matt ineptitude and corruption. 

' Numerous social activist groups en-J 
gage in advocacy campaigns that 
would have- been impossible two 
years ago. A half-dozen human' 
rights organizations investigate and 
report on government abuses and 
Khmer Rouge atrocities. 

However, the new openness in 
Cambodia is tenuous and anlikefy to 
survive unless multiparty democra- 
cy does. Should current trends con- 
tinue, the country win probably re- 
' turn, by default, to a one-party state.-* 
.Besides those who live off govern-:

From the van tage point of 1 994.’amid 
me overwhelming damor of narcissism, 
cynicism, crime and the twisted tales ot 
afternoon television, ft is not thai easy 
to recall the extraordinary innocence 
that prevailed among so many Ameri- 
cans in the early 1960s. 

1 think of the time from I960 w 1963 
as the pre-sixties, a prelude to the hvped 
up. psychedelic years that gave the de- 
cade its identity. It was a cool and rela- 
tively quiet transitional period which 
had stronger ties of kinship to the 1950s 
than to the tumultuous era that lay 
ahead. The president throughout 1960 
was Dwight Eisenhower. 

President John Kennedy took office 
on Jan. 20, 1961, a time when Jack 
Benny and Red Skelton were still major 
prime-time television attractions and 
dreamy songs like “Where the Bow 
Are” and “Moon River” were big hits.

of the era, Martin Luther King Jr. 
could stir the nation with his profound- 
ly moving expression of his dream for 
ms people, delivered just Lhree months 
before John Kennedy was killed. 

The capacity to dream seemed infi- 
nite. And for so many Americans there 
was no belter place to project those 
dreams than onto the rim Family, 
Exhibit A in the attempt to prove that 
fairy tales came true. 

It was astonishing, reaDy. Jack and 
Jackie had Limitless self-confidence and 
never seemed to get upset over anything. 
They could handle it all and with elan 
— from the threat of nuclear war to the 
challenge of raising two young children 
in the world's brightest spotlight. 

And then, of course, on Nov. 22, 1963, 
it looked as if it had all collapsed in a 
heap. The assassination was a cruel 
breach of faith, and the damage to the 
nation’s psyche was enormous. In fairy 
tales you don’t kill off the hero. 

But nothing dies harder than a dream 
in America. So there was Jackie in the 
immediate aftermath, grief -stricken bul 
as dignified and perfect as ever, provid- 
ing a focus for the nation’s sorrow even 
as she organized the rituals for our 
collective grief. 

The country could not let her go. She 
moved out of the White House but she 
remained the first lady, still charged 
with the safekeeping of the fantasies and 
dreams of so many. 

Was that brief period in the early 
'60s Cameloi? Perhaps not Bat it's the 
closest well ever come. And the fact 
that for more than 30 years we thought 
of Jackie as ever young and invulnera- 
ble is evidence that we held onto a 
dream of something like Camelot right 
up ontil the end.

In the weeks since the death of for- 
mer President Richard Nixon, it has 
become fashionable to advocate, as he 
did, a policy toward Russia of dealing 
with political leaders other than Presi- 
dent Boris Yeltsin. The Clinton admin- 
istration has ignored this shift in 
conventional wisdom and has contin- 
ued to work almost exclusively with the 
established regime. 

The correct, answer is neither of these, 
and it is so obvious that it has nearly 
eluded us. We must treat Russia as the 
burgeoning democracy we would like it 
to be. That means dealing primarily with 
the party in power, while fully recogniz- 
ing the legitimacy of other parties that 
have achieved any degree of support 
from the Russian people. 

This middle-of-the-road approach is 
neither naive nor noncommittal. The 
intricacies of another country's domes- 
tic politics are beyond the comprehen- 
sion of the most astute foreign experts;

Regarding “ A Mystery: Less Birth. 
More Death" f Opinion, April 7 1 by Nicho- 
las Eberstadt: 

On the face of it, a 60 percent drop in 
post-Communist East Germany’s birth 
rate does seem mysterious. However, as 
an American Living in the Eastern Ger- 
man city of Jena, the reason seems dear. 

Women here are unhappy. Before the 
Berlin Wall fell most of them were em- 
ployed, and their children were placed in 
any of the numerous day-care centers. 
Today, these women have no work 
(more women than men lost jobs after 
reunification), and they bemoan their 
living conditions in cramped and deteri- 
orating apartments built during the 
Communist era. Moving to a larger 


underlying teenage crime. Moreover, se- 
rious steps must be taken toward stop- 
ping the profusion of handguns. “Liber- 
ty Montesquieu wrote, “can consist 
only in having the power to do what one 
should want to do and in no way be 
constrained to do what one should not 
want to do.” Real solutions will be ex- 
hausting and expensive. But unless what 
we Americans “want to do” is to live 
perpetually in fear, ignoring our prob- 
lems will exact the biggest price of all 
— our freedom.

The point is not to vacillate between

vide consistent support for, and snow 
faith in, the democratic process, a con- 
fidence that hopefully will be a self- 
fulfilling prophecy. 

Finally, if this approach is to suc-

from claiming any ideological high 
ground. As repulsive as certain extreme 
elements may be, they are present in 
every democratic society, including 
America. We must have faith in the 
ability of the Russian people to discern 
leadership from lunacy, and to make 
their choices accordingly. 


Behind American Violence

Regarding “ Young American Crimi- 
nals. A Game, Right? ” ( May 17): 

The article on violent crime by Ameri- 
can teenagers (and even preieens) high- 
lights the sad truth that there will be no 
magic solutions to litis growing problem. 
Lowering the age at wind) people may be 
tried as adults may seem fair, but I am 
skeptical of the abiHiy of young would-be 
criminals to make the sort of calculations 
that give tougher laws preventive power. 
Tougher laws are no substitute for a 
proper sense of right and wrong. 

The time has come for Americans to 
totally commit their resources to long- 
term solutions to the social problems 


Regarding “Cartier-Bresson: A Focus 
on Humor ” f Features, May I3l : 

The article about Henri Cartier-Bres- 
son failed to mention that the founders 
of the Magnum Photo Agency included 
not only Mr. Cartier-Bresson, Robert 
Capa and David Seymour but also Wil- 
liam Vandivert and Geoige Rodger. 
Though the latter two are less well- 
known (Mr. Van divert left the agency

The correctives were to no avail. 


To suggest that any Home Army 
soldiers murdered Jews was I&se-

lenged the received wisdom that 
Poles did whatever they could as

prominent intellectual Adam Mich-

“anti-PolishiKss and anti-goyism."

Klovksy gave up. 


His book is not a polemic. Rattier, 
it tries to get to the truth by weaving 
a tapestry that is part history, part 
ruminations, part fiction and pan 
semi-ficlion. It moves back and 
forth between scenes of Poland nf 
the 1930s. during the war. and now. 
then to New York, where many Jew- 
ish survivors found a haven after the 
war. One of the protagonists is very 
much like the Nobel Prize-winner 
Isaac Bashevis Singer. 

Rymkiewicz cites passages from 
the many sources he consulted, two 
particularly striking ones from a 
book wrilten by a Pole who wit- 
nessed the deportation of the Jewish 
population in his small town near 
Warsaw. The reaction of the local 
population, with notable exception, 
was ghastly. Hordes of people, he 
writes, descended on the freshly va- 
cated homes of the Jews, robbing, 
looting, "streaming with sweat, their 
eyes darting nervously about, (look- 
ing] like overladen ants salvaging 
tire treasures of their devastated ant- 
hifl.” Another shattering scene de- 
scribes Jews "squatting in row?,." 
waiting to be deported, with “the 
Germans drinking beer" and 
“groups of slender, pleasantly sun- 
tanned boys and girls standing 
around the ice cream kiosks on the 
nearby beach.” 

Yet on balance “The Final Sta- 
tion," Tor all its merits, does not 
succeed in its objective. Pan of the 
blame rests on the publishers, who 
aocepted a flawed translation con- 
taining references to people, places 
and incidents unknown to most 
Americans. For many Polish read- 
ers this was no problem. But the 
vast majority of American readers 
should have been provided with a 
glossary and footnotes. 

In addition, the fusion of fiction 
and nonfiction, reminiscences, cur- 
rent observations and occasional 
obiter dicta does not quite hold 
together. Some of the observations 
are forced, and the occasional hu- 
mor awkward. 

“The Final Station” is a brave 
attempt to provide an. antidote to 
that malaise of anti<Jewish hatred 
and apologetics that still flourishes 
in Poland half a century after the 
“history of the Polish Jews came to 
an end." Pity the book isn’t better.

eiee Wave: Fashion Goes Natural 


An American in Japan 


By Suzy Menkes 

International Herald Tribune 


P ARIS — They are calling ii the 
“beige wave." Neutral fashion has 
bled color from upscale shops in 
Manhattan or the Paris Left Bank. 
This focus on pallid shades for the summer 
season might be described as a straw in the 
fashion wind. _ 

Straw, raffia, macrame and all kinds of 


stringy materials are part or the vogue for so- 
called “natural” colors and fibers. In fact, 
nothing expresses better fashion's move 
from major to minor key in the 1990s than 
the use of such ephemeral materials. 

The focus on beige is partly an extension 
into the summer season of winter's preoccu- 
pation with black. It suggests a society where 
to be seen flaunting clothes or expressing 
sartorial optimism goes against the grain. 

The basic suit for summer in the city is in 
beige linen or a similar rough-weave material 
making a simple, understated jacket and 
pants. In casual vein, there are ecru knits in 
crunchy cotton or shinier viscose, with lacy 
stitches or mesh effects compensating for the 
pale colors. The preferred shapes are the 


long, easy tunic, the elongated Nehru jacket 
or cardigan and the string singlet — often all 
layered together over pants. The trousers 
may also be knitted and are often wide and 
(loppy or as soft as jogging pants. 

“Nature" is the key word in the context of 
summer style, for the use of raffia and straw 
forcloibes (and especially accessories) is pan 
of an ecological fashion feeling that has 
pushed aside gilt and glitz. When the signa- 
ture Chanel quilted-leather handbag meta- 
morphoses into a straw basket you know 
that the change is for real. 

Even Giorgio Armani — a designer who 
favors minimal deco radon — found inspira- 
tion in back-to-nature accessories: string 
bags, mesh singlets or open-work crochet 
berets in (you guessed it) beige. His most 
dramatic statement was necklaces decorated 
with circles of straw and macramfe apparent- 
ly strung from string. 

Who is going to pay money for old design- 
er rope? It is an irony of modern Fashion that 
crafts once associated with peasant life are 
now prized by customers who realize that 
only at the summit of haute couture can such 
expensive handwork be kept going in an 
industrial society. 


Christian Lacroix has put an emphasis on 
passementerie — all those Gallic rope tricks 
that are not only used in interior decoration 
for fancy drapes, but also on clothes. Raffia 
embroidery has been shown by Lacroix. Dior 
and other couture houses as a way of empha- 
sizing arts and crafts that are more suited to 
the current fashion climate than pit thread 
and rhinestone beads. 


look like perambulating corn stalks. And in 
his last show Miyake had the ultimate in 


back-to-nature headgear a hut shaped like 
an upturned flower pot coated in soil with 
blades of grass sprouting from the crown.

inspired by Vietnam — not an easy place for 
an American designer. Lauren's straw pago-

shown with khaki clothes in an attempt to 
widen the range of beige. 


Issey Miyake also works imaginatively in 
fabric, re-creating the weaves of Japanese

materials. He has even woven raffia into

The ultimate in natural fashion came from 
another American designer. Todd Oldham. 
He sent out a dress with woven bodice and 
rustling raffia fringe like a grass skirt. It was 
funny, funky and made an over-the-iop

to be seen whether the customers will buy 
these ecologically correct clothes — or think 
of them as high fashion’s last straw.

OKYO — in her first 
book. "Japan; The An of 
Living." Amy Sylvester 
Katoh recalled the first 
time she invited her new Japanese 
father-in-law to tea. She served him 
freshly baked cakes and cookies 
a bamboo tray traditionally used 
for noodles. He was shocked. 

That was three decades ago, when 
she was new to Japan, and it was 
also the beginning of a long and 
winding turnabout for the vivacious 
American. She is now recognized 
throughout Japan for her dedication 
to preserving and venerating what 
has been rapidly disappearing here: 
traditional rural crafts. 

Katoh has established a link be- 
tween an ancient culture and the 
modern consumer, giving new life 
to designs that were once indige- 
nous to Lhe countryside. 

On a morning last fall, Katoh 
continued her mission, leading a 
small group of friends to a yukata 
workshop on the eastern end of the 
sprawling city of Tokyo. 

Y ukata, the crisp blue-and-while 
cotton fabric used for summer ki 
monos, is one example of a tradi 
lional textile that has contempo- 
rary applications, particularly for 
home furnishings. “There are over 
300 shades of blue in Japan,” said 
Katoh, 52. 

Her mission has become her per- 
sonal style. In her new book. “Ja 
pan. Country Living: Spirit. Tradi- 
tion, Style” (Charles E. Tuttle Co.), 
she elaborates on her experiences 
traveling throughout a countryside

where she says the old life is disap- 
pearing. 

This odyssey began in 1963 with 
her marriage to Yidchi Katoh. now a 
businessman. They met when, they 
were counselors at a summer camp 

for the blind in her native Massa- 


chusetts. At the time, he was a stu 


dent at Harvard University and she 
was entering Smith College. 

I have been a special guest in 
Japan for over 30 years," is bow 
Katoh describes her life and the 
confluence of events that has 
moved her along a path she calls “a 
trail of wonder and surprise.” 

Her Blue A White emporium is 
the headquarters for her activities. 
The store is on a side street near the 
Roppongj Crossing subway stop. 
Its wide window jutting out onto 
the street is a festival of die seasons 
that delights children passing by. 

In early spring, branches of cber 
ry blossoms were supported by an 
old door that had decomposed into 
a skeletal lattice bound by rice straw 
rope. Wabi sabi is the term she uses 
to describe this beauty of decay 

Spread out under the branches 
was a picnic setting, the table an 
inverted basket laid with a pink 
ceramic set in a cherry blossom 
pattern. 


Katoh has earned enough re- 
spect that her support is often suffi- 
cient to revive or sustain certain 
Japanese craft industries. The yu 
kata workshop is an example. 

During the tour, individual rolls 
of cotton, bound up in drums like 
giant s ushi, were being unfurled to 
make lenugui. the printed cotton 
hand towels that can also be made 
into the swealbands worn by sushi 

chefs and construe lion workers. 

At Blue A White, the most fetch- 
ing Lenugui have been made in pat- 
terns of seasonal fruits and vegeta- 
bles. Katoh rediscovers traditional 
designs by viewing displays at the 
Mingei Museum or by combing 
flea markets for bits and pieces of 
old textiles. 


Hanging in Katoh ’s 
rungs of old ladders are other 
lional blue and white textiles, 
sashiko, a quilted fabric worn 
farmers in the north, or kastui 
woven from threads dyed into 
arranged patterns. 


Wooden shelves are filled wi 
products made out of old t 
patterns, from notebooks and 
meric bags to cushions and cm 
tea boxes. The printed design on 
one small change purse showed a 
carp swimming up a waterfall, the 
Japanese symbol for courage an4 
determination; it is also part of. the 
shop’s logo. 

“While other countries

Katoh said, “Japan itself has

tastes and looks.

establish what she calls “aJa

But this return to a sensibility 
about rural life also takes great 
leaps in originality, as demonstrate 
ed by an autumnal exhibition of 
baskets and vegetables at Bluaife

Germany 
Wary on 
Rate Cuts 


Tietmeyen Hiatus 

For 'Time Being 5 


Reuters 


FRANKFURT — Hans Tict- 
meyer. president of the Bundes- 
bank, said Monday that the Ger- 
man central bank planned no more 
rate cuts in the near future, signal- 
ing at least a temporary hiatus after 
several years of reductions. 

“We are not following a siep-by- 
step cut in interest rates for the 
lime being," be said at a news con- 
ference in Helsinki. 

He was responding to a question 
on whether his comments last week 
in the German magazine Spiegel 
that the rale horizon was dear 
meant that there would not be offi- 
cial rate cuts in the short term 

German financial marked; were 
closed Monday for a public holiday, 
but mark-bond futures on the Lon- 
don International Financial Futures 
Exchange tumbled on the news. 

Analysts interpreted the com- 
ments to mean there would be a 
pause in cuts in the discount and 
Lombard rates, the respective floor 
and ceiling of German rates. The 
analysts noted that the Bundes- 
bank was likely to continue to 
make cuts in its securities repur- 
chase rate, or repo rate, which is the 
leading interest rate for the Ger- 
man money markeL but that the 
pace of the cuts may slow. 

The repo rate declined to 5.23 
percent Iasi week from 5.35 percent 
in the preceding week. 

Repo- rate cuts "will continue 
but at a decelerated pace.” said 
Rolf G Anther Th i iman n . an econo- 
mist at Salomon Brothers Inc. in 
London. “I wouldn't expect the 
magnitude of last week's.” 

The decision to put rate cuts on 
bold apparently reflects in part the 
view that German money supply 
'growth remains higher than the 


Bundesbank's target of 4 to 6 per- 
laid. f 


O JntMnatonal Hard Id TrBune 


cent, analysts said. It grew at a rate 
of 15.4 percent in March. 

Consumer inflation, however, 
continues to recede and stood at 3. 1 
percent in West Germany in April. 


British Airways Is 
Flying High , But 
Troubles Loom 


By Erik Ipsen 

tiuernauomt thraid Tribune 

LONDON — British Air- 
ways PLC is putting miles be- 
tween itself and the rest of the 
airline indusiry in the race for 
the title of the world’s most 
profitable air carrier. 

On Monday. BA announced 
pretax profit for the year ended 
March 31 of £301 million (5454 
million), a 63 percent rise over 
the previous financial year. BA 
itself com rasicd that result with 
the large losses rung up last year 
by many international earners. 

Bui all was not good news. 
The airline's chairman Sir Colin 
Marshall said that his vision or 
creating a truly global airline 
had hit a potentially cost! > snag: 
He said BA may be forced to 
write off the vjjue of its 24.6 
percent stake in .America's sixih- 
iaigcst airline, USAir Inc. 

Key to BA's recent profitabili- 
ty has been its holding of nearly 
40 percent of the takeoff and 
landing slots at London's Headi- 
row Airport, where demand for 
such slots far exceeds supply. 

Only two U.S. Laniers. Unit- 
ed and American, have landing 
rights there, and neither has as 
many slots as it would like. 

"The incumbents at Heath- 
row do enjoy near-monopoly 
profits from their positions at 
what is the leading internation- 
al airport in Europe, if not the 
world," said Guy Kekwick. an 
analyst at Lehman Brothers in 
London. "It is a fortunate posi- 
tion to be in." 

in recent years BA has built 
on that privileged position by 
taking perhaps the most aggres- 
sive approach to cost-cutting of 
any major European airline. 

But USAir's woes arc worri- 
some. Since January 1993. Brit- 
ish Airways has spent £275.3 
million building up its share in 
the troubled American airline 
which has lost money in each of 
the last six years and nearly SI 
billion in the last two years 
alone. 


Sir Colin said the fate of BA's 
investment now lies in the hands 
or USAir's unions. Those unions 
are currently mulling a reorgani- 
zation plan designed to cut costs 
and boost profits that was put to 
them recently by USAir’s man- 
agement. 

Analysis in London predicted 
Monday that a failure of those 
talks could lead USAir into 
Chapter 1 1 bankruptcy and 
prompt a write-off for BA of the 
bulk, if not all of its investment 

"If USAir goes into bank- 
ruptcy then I think BA will have 
to wme down all of their invest- 
ment just like KLM did with 
Northwest," said Andrew 
Darke, an airline analyst with 
the Williams de BrC>c' broker- 
age. 

Earlier this year. BA put 
plans on hold to invest an addi- 
tional S450 million in USAir by 
1998. citing uncertainty over 
the outcome of USAir's crucial 
restructuring efforts. 

Ironically. BA said its part- 
nership with USAir has paid off 
handsomely. Last year, the 
USAir relationship earned BA 
just under £10 million, a figure 
the airline forecast would climb 
to £70 million this year from a 
combination of revenue gains 
and cost cuts. 


The bulk of those gains have 
come from code-sharing agree- 
ments by which the two amines 
are able’ to book passengers on 
each others flights. BA also said 
it expected a £20 million gain 
from combining the carriers' fre- 
quent-flyer programs. 

Some analysis noted that the 
expected £70 million gain for 
this year would stoke competi- 
tive fires between BA and its 
big American competitors. 

Earlier this year, some U.S. 
carriers sought unsuccessfully 
to block an extension of BA's 
code-sharing deal with USAir 
on the grounds that it gave the 
British carrier an unfair advan- 
tage in the huge U.S. market. 


Sandoz to Buy Gerber 
For $3.7 Billion in Cash 


CurnpfeJ to Ojt Stuff From Diqxutha 

NEW YORK — Sandoz AG. the 
Swiss pharmaceuticals company, 
said Monday it would acquire 
Gerber Products Co. in a S3.7 bil- 
lion cash deal. 

The Swiss company, based in Ba- 
sel, said it will offer S53 a share for 
all Gerber shares, amounting to a 
premium of 53 percent above the 
baby-food maker's Friday closing 
price of 534.625. The company’s 
share price soared 46 percent from 
Friday, to a closing quote of 550.50 
on Monday. 

Earlier this month, Roche Hold- 
ing Ltd., another Basel-based 
chemicals company, purchased 
Syntex Corp„ a U.S. dreg compa- 
ny. for S5.3 billion in cash. 

Sandoz. one of the world’s larg- 
est chemicals concerns, had sales of 
SI0.3 billion last year and net in- 
come of SI.2 billion. It has interests 
in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, nu- 
trition. seeds and the construction 
business. 

Gerber Products, based in Fre- 
mont. Michigan, is a developer and 
marketer of baby food and care 
products with sales of about SI.2 
billion. It claims 70 percent of the 
U.S. baby foods markeL 

The Sandoz acquisition of 
Gerber doubles the size of the San- 
doz food products division, which 


includes Ovalline and other con- 
sumer brands. The unit is the fast- 
est-growing pan of the company. It 
also dramatically expands the divi- 
sion’s presence in the United 
Slates. 

Sandoz’s nutrition division had 
sales of SI.2 billion, but only 14 
percent of that was in the United 
States. Gerber had sales of Sl-2 
billion in 1 994 and 89 percen t origi- 
nated in North America. 

Alfred PieigaUini. Gerber chair- 
man and chief executive, said in a 
statement that the company spent 
many months evaluating its best 
course and that joining with San- 
doz would aid it internationally. 

"Sandoz has in place the interna- 
tional structure and presence to cap- 
italize on the Gerber brand and ex- 
pertise in child nutrition." said Rolf 
Schweizer, chief executive of Sandoz 
Ltd. "Gerber's position in North 
America strengthens our existing 
base of nutrition products there.” 

The companies said that the obli- 
gation for Sandoz to purchase 
shares would have to be approved 
by regulators. They said they ex- 
pected to close the’ tender offer in 
three to six months. 

Gerber also reported Monday 
that its profit fell 40.6 percent in 
the fourth quarter of 1994, to $25.6 
million. The latest results included 
a $22.4 million restructuring charge 


to cut labor and overhead cos 
while earnings in the comparat 
period a year earlier had included 
gain from the sale of an appai 
subsidiary. 

.Analysis in Zurich said the Swi 
market, which was closed on Mo 
day for a holdiay, was likely 
react negatively at first, largely b 
cause of an anticipated dilution 
Sandoz’s earnings. 

"With the general mood in tl 
market, earnings dflutioa isn’t ta 
en up wdl,” said Frederick Has 
la uer. an analyst at Bank SaL O 
penh rimer Jr. in Zurich. ' 

Wondering whether Sandoz ws 
paying too much, Mr. Hasslaw 
said the overall price represente 
about 29 times Gerber’s net incoir 
before restructuring charges c 
S127 million in the company’s f 
nancial year, which ended i 
March. 

But he said the companies wer 
likely to benefit from the synergic 
to be had from the merger. “Th 
tactical move is correct,” he said. 

In recent years. Sandoz has ag 
gressively bought marketing right 
to research in the U.S. and expand 
ed its nutritional line. In 1990, talk 
were called off that were meant t< | 
combine Sandoz's agrochemical > 
segment with that of Schering AC a 
of Germany in a joint venture. m

ATHENS — Greece said Monday it would sell as 
much as 25 percent of the Greek telecommunications 
company OTE this year, a move it hoped would ener- 
gize an Athens bourse reeling from the drachma crisis. 

But analysts warned that the government would 
need to lime the sale carefully to avoid causing more 
problems for the stock exchange. 

The stake in the profitable telecommunications 
company, which has been scheduled for privatization 
since 1990, will also be offered for sale mi stock 
exchanges in the United States and Japan, the national 
economy minister, Yannos Papandoniou, said. He did 
not say exactly how much of the company would be 
sold in" each country. 

The company, whose official name is Greek Tele- 
communications Organization, has shown annual 
profit recently of 150 billion to 200 billion drachmas 
($602 million to $802 million). 


“We’re talking about a c hain reaction — a health} 
bourse and OTE's flotation, which will improve siocki 
further and help more public companies to be listed,’ 
lakovos Diamandopoulos of M. Kyranis Securities said. 

He said a valuation for the company would be 
announced after consultations with financial advisers, 
with the terms of the sale to be contained in a bill foi 

E resen ration in the Parliament, where the government 
as a substantia] majority. 

But if the Socialist government orders the flotation 
when the bourse is still down, it may have trouble 
selling the shares, or the company's listing could cause 
a sell-off in the rest of the market as investors scramble 
for OTE stock. 

“If OTE Is floated when the bourse is down because 
of high interest rates, the market will crash.” Tasos 
Rapakoulias of Katsoulis Securities said. “It's a ques- 
tion of timing."

Thinking Ahead /Commentary 


In This Globalization, Jobs Stay Put 


By Reginald Dale 

httemaanal HmU Tribute 

W ASHINGTON — How global 
is globalization? Not, the an- 
swer appears to be, as global as 
you might think. Rather than 
rasing a threat to the industrial countries, as 
xjmmonly supposed, it may be more danger- 
ms for developing countries. 

Indeed, some economists fear, Large pans of 
he globe — particularly the poorer parts — 
isk exclusion from the globalization process. 

Of course, manv aspects of globalization 
ire genuine. With the triumph of market 
sconoraics, barriers are falling; modern com- 


: It is true that starting in the 1970s, the 
industrial world’s multinational corporations 
started shifting production to low- wage 
countries and exporting the output back to 
their home markets. 

But that trend, says Mr. Oman, is decelerat- 
ing and in some industries actually revering. 

One major reason is that in many indus- 
tries the share of low-skilled labor in produc- 


limitations are shrinking the planet; nnan- 
• J the dock, and 


Fears that work will 
flow to low-wage countries 
are largely misplaced. 


Lai markets are open around _ 

ompanies increasingly operate worldwide. 

As a result, many in the industrial coun- 
ies fear that manufacturing production and 
ibs will disappear en masse to low-wage 
evdoping countries. 

Those fears are largely misplaced. Far from 
^reading around the world, production is m 
ict being regionalized — and much of it is 
eadingto the main advanced regions in 
lorth America. Europe and Asia. 

Al though most mainstream economists 
ave missed it, what we are wtoesangj* 
totalization, but global locahzation, due m 
io new methods of product* on ^nd 
lanagement that are consigning Henry 
tarfs traditional assembly lme to the trash 
cap of history. 

That at any rate is the argument rather 
mvindngly Advanced by Carles Oman m a 
ew study of globalization and regionalization 
v the Oreamziation for Economic Coopera- 
ffilfcSpnmrs Development Center. 


tion costs has been rapidly Tailing — from 
around 25 percent in the 1970s to perhaps 5 
percent or 10 percent today. 

Another is that it is increasingly important 
for producers to be dose to their customers 
and to their suppliers of parts and services. 

Both these trends are reinforced by the new 
flexible production techniques that rely on 
highly trained and motivated labor forces, con- 
tinuous innovation and just-in-time delivery of 
components. They require educated workers 
and good transport mid communications. 

One result is that the move from high -wage 
to low-wage areas, insofar as it continues, wm 
increasingly be within regions rather than 
between them. In Europe, companies will be 
more likely to move operations from Germa- 
ny to Portugal or Eastern Europe than to 
Latin America or Aria. 

Production for the North American mar- 
ket is more likely to move to low-wage areas 
in the United States or Mexico. 

By setting up shop inside each of the three 


major economic areas, companies hope to 
insulate themselves from potential trade wars 
and currency fluctuations. 

The change, says Mr. Oman, is ironic. Not 
only is it happening just as many developing 
countries turn outward and seek to become 
low-wage sites for production to serve global 
markets; it also comes as a rising chorus of 
protectionist voices in some industrial coun- 
tries is mistakenly blaming unemployment 
and declining incomes on a shift of produc- 
tion to developing countries. 

That means that when developing coun- 
tries axe finally Liberalizing their own trade 
policies, they face the threat that the ad- 
vanced counLries will impose higher barriers 
against their exports. 

Most companies from developing coun- 
tries are unlikely’ to be able to afford to set up 
production inside the advanced ecoumic 
blocs, and many developing countries may 
find it hard to attract companies using the 
new post-Fondisl production techniques- 

One result of the new set-up, Mr. Oman 
says, is that the industrialized countries 1 collec- 
tive will to pursue multilateral made liberaliza- 
tion has weakened — as demonstrated by the 
prolonged difficulty in concluding the Uru- 
guay Round. But the developing countries’ 
interest in liberalization is much greater. 

So the developing nations are likely to 
continue to press for closer links with blocs 
such as the North American Free T rade Area 
and the European Union. Their companies 
will seek more tie-ups with companies in the 
industrial countries. 

But, says Mr. Oman, the question remains: 
Will globalization be globalized? At least Hen- 
ty Fond did not have to worry about thaL 


Fox Network Snatches 12 U.S. Affiliates 


Compiled fy Our Staff From Dispuiiher 

NEW YORK - News Corp.’s 
Fox Broadcasting Co. on Monday 
announced a 5500 million joint 
venture with New World Commu- 
nications Group Inc. (hat will give 
the Fox television network 12 sta- 
tions now affiliated with its big 
three rivals. 

Fox and New World, which pro- 
duced "The Wonder Years” and 
"Santa Barbara” television series, 
said the alliance would result in the 
largest network affiliation realign- 
ment in television history. 

At the same time. Fox and New 
World will jointly develop syndi- 
cated programming that will run on 
Fox and New World stations. 

The agreement calls for up to 12 
stations owned or to be acquired by 


New World to change their net- 
work affiliations to Fox from ABC, 
CBS and NBC. 

“This agreement will forever 
change the competitive landscape 
of network television.” said Rupert 
Murdoch, chairman of News Corp. 

Mr. Murdoch launched the Fox 
network seven years ago with the 
52 billion purchase of seven televi- 
sion stations from Metromedia Co. 

The network, seeking to move 
beyond its youth-oriented markeu 
recently shocked its competitors by 
oulbidding them for the rights to 
broadcast the National Football 
League’s National Football Con- 
ference games next season. 

“With this strategic alliance. New 
World emerges- as a leading syndi- 
cated program provider in a highly 


competitive marketplace,” said Wil- 
liam Bevins, the chief executive of 
New World. “That, plus significant 
access to the Fox network for our 
series and movie programs, puls us 
in the leading ranks of television 
production companies." 

New World's five currently 
owned and operated VHF stations 
are switching to Fox affiliations. 
They include WJBK-TV Detroit, 
WJW-TV Geveland. WAGA-TV 
Atlanta, WTVT-TV Tampa and 
WITI-TV Milwaukee. 

New World has an option to ac- 
quire a major stake in Argyle Televi- 
sion Holding Inc., which owns four 
television stations in Texas, Missou- 
ri and Alabama. New World said if 
it were to exercise its option and 
gain control of Argyle. it would af- 


filiate three of the stations with Fox.' 
New World’s acquisition of Argyle 
requires approval from the Federal 
Comm uni cations Commission. 

New World also is in the process 
of buying four stations from Great,' 
American Communications Corp. 
All four of those stations would* 
become Fox affiliates. 

Industry analysts said CBS, cur- 
rently the most popular U.S. televi- 
sion network, had the most to lose' 
from the affiliation shift. Eight of 
the stations that are to switch affili- 
ations with Fox are now affiliated 
with CBS. 

CBS shares fell in heavy trading 
on the New York Stock Exchange, 
while News Corp.’s American de- 
positary receipts rose.

A gence France- Tnisc 

BEIJING — Zhu Rongji. Chi- 
na's deputy prime minister, has 
called for banks io make credii 
more freely available to state- 
owned companies hit by the gov- 
ernment's ami-inflation policy as a 
means of preserving social stabil- 
ity. reports said Monday. 

The call by Mr. Zhu. who is also 
governor of China's central bank, 
confirmed recent signs that Tears of 
labor unrest and calls for help from 
the unprofitable state companies 
had prompted (he government to 
loosen its tight credit policy, de- 
spite inflation that continues to run 
at more than 20 percent. 

The stale sector was hit badly by 
the credit clampdown in the first 
quaner. when about half of lhe 
companies reported I«>m:>. com- 
pared with about one- third of them 
a year earlier. 

The newspaper People's Daily 
quoted Mr. Zhu as saving banks 
and local governments should dif- 
ferentiate good companies from 
had and “give their full support to 
those enterprises' that arc able to 
sell their products, can repay their 
debts and arc effluent." 

At the same time, he slid, ■'long- 
term loss-makers that have no hope 
of turning a profit" should be al- 
lowed to go bankrupt, at first on a 
trial basis and then “more hnudb 

But diplomats »aid the remarks 
reflected the government's desire 
for a selective approach u* credit 
loosening rather than -*nv real 
mitmeni to allowing enterprises in 
the slate-owned set lor — which i> 
estimated to have l<‘ aiillioti sur- 
plus' workers ■ — go bankrupt. 

“1 don't sense from other state- 
ments that they're ah.*ut i •• lei njte 
enterprises hanlrupi.” one dip- 
lomat said.

>iEW YORK — Bond prices 
nged Monday as a rise in cum- 
dity prices entered its second 
.*k* raising fears of inflation, 
•locks also fell, although losses 
re not as severe as in the credit 
rkets. 

Hie price of the benchmark ?0- 
ir Treasury bond dropped 1 
’32 point, to 85 31/ 32. while the 

' U.S.SU»cte 

Jd jumped to 7.43 pmem from 
iO percent Friday. 

Weakness in bond prices helped 
sg down slocks. The Dow Jones 
iuscrial 1 average closed do«n 
.94 points, at 3.742.41. while los- 
l issues outpaced gaining ones on 
; New York Stock Exchange by a 
io-3 ratio. 

“You can't be real positive on 
e bond when commodities are 
■ing up." said Edward Yardeni. 
lief economist at C.J. Law- 
nce/ Deutsche Bank Securities. 
That's just the way it is.” 

J 'While recent government data 
; ive offered little evidence of infla- 
an, the rising commodity prices 
mid mean it lies ahead, some 
aderssaid. 

“People still see longer-term 
Teeters c*f inflation, given the way 
tmmoditv prices are acting.” said 
dward Laux, a trader at Kidder, 
eabody & Co. 

Inflation erodes ihe value of 
xed -income securities and could 
rompt the Federal Reserve Board 
) raise interest rates a fifth time 
ils year to try to reign in inflation. 
Stock and bond prices rallied last 
'eek after the Fed raised interest 
ales by a larger-Uwn-Mpected 
largjn. Pan of that rally was 
toked by sentiment that the cen- 
ral bank was through altering 
nonetary policy for the present. 
But the commodity rally has 
rased that sentiment. 

“The perception is we’re going to 
ee another round or Lightening, 
irobably in July.” said Richard 
Ziardulfo. a trader at Eagle Asset

Dollar Is Undermined 
By Slumping Stocks 


Bloomberg Business Sews 

NEW YORK — The dollar fell 
Monday against most major cur- 
rencies today after U.S. stocks and 
bonds tumbled and the Bundes- 
bank gave indications it would not 
soon lower rates, raising concern 
about the health of dollar-denomi- 
nated assets. 

“People are still very bearish 
about the dollar ” said Tom Hoge. 

Foreign Exchange 

wee president of coiporate curren- 
cy trading at Bank of New York. 
“Nobody is comfortable holding 
American assets." 

“It looks like there’s a buyers’ 
strike on the dollar right now ." said 
Victor Polce, head of foreign-ex- 
change marketing at Commerz- 
bank. “It’s under pressure.” 

U.S. Treasury bonds sank last 
week after the Commodity Re- 
search Bureau's index, a closely- 
watched gauge of inflation, rose to 
its highest level in three-and-a-half 
years. The benchmark 30-year 
Treasury bond fell by more than a 
point on Friday and by an even 
larger margin on Monday.

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE*. TUESDAY, MAY 24, 1994 



The Commodity Research Bu- 
reau’s index of 21 key commodity 
prices, often considered a leading 
inflation indicator, was pushed to a 
three-and-a-half-year high by gains 
in copper, crude oil, cocoa and cof- 
fee prices. 

Gold prices also rose as investors 
bought the metal as a hedge against 
inflation. On the Commodity Ex- 
change in New York, gold for June 
delivery rose $3.60 an ounce, to 
5389.90. 

Rising gold prices gave a lift to 
geld mining companies. Newmont 
Mining rose l*s to 42*. 4 and Ameri- 
can Barrick Resources gained v « to 
25 ,J i in active trading. 

Food companies also bucked the 
stock market's downtrend, gaining 
os Sandoz's plans to buy Gerber 
Products fueled speculation about 
future mergers in the industry. 
Gerber rose 15 'j to 50!i and 
lopped the Big Board's most-active 
list. 

Kellogg, the world's largest cere- 
al maker, rose 1 *7 to 52. while Gen- 
eral Mills gained !~n to 53%. 

Eastman Kodak jumped to 
47 in active trading, still benefiting 
from a federal court decision Fri- 
day that lifted a decades-old decree 
that had kept the photographic- 
products maker from selling pri- 
vate-label film. 

CBS dropped 15'.^ to 288 on 
news that the rival Fox Broadcast- 
ing was adding 12 network affili- 
ates. 8 of them now affiliated with 
CBS. The American depositary re- 
ceipts of News Corp., which owns 
Fox. rose '4 to 52'i'*. 

Shares of New World Communi- 
cations, which linked wiLh Fox. 
rose I 13/16 to KM* io active over- 
the-counter trading. 

in over-the-coumer trading, 
Kurzweil Applied Intelligence fell 
2 hi to 3 ' 4 . The company, which is 
active in voice- recognition technol- 
ogy. said it would’ restate recent 
financial results because of dubious 
sales and after several top execu- 
tives resigned.

State Price Increases a Rude Awakening in Cuba 


The dollar dosed at (.6456 DM 
on Monday, down from a closing 
quote of 1.6465 DM on Friday. 

Trading was less active than usu- 
al because many European markets 
were closed for a holiday. But Lon- 
don. the world’s largest foreign ex- 
change center, was open. 

Dealers said that there were con- 
siderable sales of the dollar for 
marks after it was reported that 
Bundesbank President Hans Tiet- 

3 sr had told journalists in Hel- 
that rates would not fall again 
“for the lime being." 

The Bundesbank last cut interest 
rates on May 11. 

Against other currencies, the 
dollar closed at 1.4048 Swiss 
francs, off slightly from a closing 
rate on Friday at 1.4051 francs, and 
at 5.6263 French francs, little 
changed from Friday. 

The dollar was little changed at 
104.39 yen. slightly higher than a 
closing rale on Friday at 303.87 
yen. It was supported by optimism 
that the United States and Japan 
would toon break an impasse in 
trade relations. U.S. and Japanese 
negotiators met for a fourth day on 
Monday to try and restart formal 
trade negotiations, which broke 
down in February . 

Progress in trade talks would 
help the dollar because .America is 
considered unlikely to call for a 
strong yea if Japan makes conces- 
sions aimed at curbing their trade 
surplus with the United States. The 
dollar fell against the yen last year 
after President Bill Clinton and his 
aides said a strong yen would rrim 
the surplus by making Japan's ex- 
ports more expensive. 

U.S. Trade Representative Mick- 
ey Kantor said the talks were mov- 
ing in a “ver. positive manner." 


CanpM by Our Staff From Dispatches 

HAVANA — The Cuban government on 
Monday announced sharp increases in prices of 
certain goods and services as pari of an effort to 
ran in an expanding budget deficit. 

The executive committee of the Council of 
Ministers decreed rises or at least 50 percent in 
the price of cigarettes, cigars, alcoholic bever- 
ages, gasoline, diesel fuel, electric power, postal 
and telegraphic services and nonurban trans- 
portation. 

The new prices and fees are to go into effect 
June 1, according to a decree that was pub- 


lished in Trabaj adores, the weekly official pub- 
lication of the state-run labor union. 

Although the increases were steep, prices 
.were still below blade-market costs for the 
goods and services affected, sources said. 

Fares for inter-city buses rose 1 16 percent, 
while domestic air fares were up 80 percent 
and train fares were raised 60 percent Elec- 
tricity, which is severdy rationed, also was 
targeted for big increases proportional to the 
amount consumed. 

Cuba’s communist government is seeking to 
reduce a 42 billion peso (S3. 18 billion) budget 


deficit and an estimated 12 billion peso surplus 
in (he money supply. 

Under a package of measures authorized by 
the National Assembly on May 2. the price 
increases are to be followed by other steps, 
including a progressive income tax and 'reduc- 
tions in subsidies to state enterprises. 

Authorities on the Caribbean island, which is 
battling an economic crisis, have been prepar- 
ing public opinion for months for measures 
viewed as painful but unavoidable.

U.S. Acts on Digital Signature 

NEW YORK (NYT) — The UJS. government quietly adopted a stan- 
dard last week for creating digital-electronic signatures that cannot be 
forged, using a method developed by researchers at the National Security 
Agency that has been bitterly opposed by many computer companies. 

A digital signature allows one person to produce a specially encrypted 
number that anyone can later verify could only have been produced by 
that individual Digital signatures are vital in the information age because 
they can authenticate electronic documents and ensure that the docu- 
ments have not been tampered with or altered in any way. 

The decision places Washington at odds with many large hardware and 
software companies, which use a competing approach developed by RSA 
Data Security Inc., a software company in Redwood Gey, California. 
Critics have charged that the government standard is inefficient, that the 
selection process for tlx underlying algorithm was not public, that time 
provided for public analysis was not sufficient and that the algorithm 
chosen by the government may infringe on patents held by RSA and others.

Banks Agree 
To Cut Back 
Poland’s Debt 


EUROP^^fl^

WARSAW — Poland and its 
Western creditor banks have 
reached agreement on terms to re-

°f SJ3.2 billion, a Polish official 
said Monday. 

Tie : buyback rate for the princi- 
pal and outstanding interest was 41 
cents to the dollar, Poland’s chief 
negotiator, JCrcysztof Krowacki. 
to the PAP news agency. 

Tie deal concluded over the 
weekend concerns implementation 
w a general agreement reached 
March 1 1 on the reduction of the 
country’s debt to the so-called Lon- 
don Club of commercial banks. 

Mr. Krowacki said the govern- 
ment also proposed the possible 
conversion of some debt into equi- 
ty in Polish companies. 

flunk s are expected to comment 
on the deal by June 29. The govern- 
ment will later sign debt agree- 
ments with each of the creditor 
banks. 

“The agreement is final and we 
wiD have nothing else to offer to 
banks which will not accept it," Mr. 
Krowacki said. 

The March 11 agreement, 
reached after four years of lalkc , 
had provided for a 45 percent re- 


duction of the debt, and this was 
comparable to conditions negotiat- 
ed with the Paris Guh of creditor 
countries. The creditor countries 
had agreed in 1991 to forgive 50 
percent of Poland’s foreign debt,

Russia Moves to Make Taxes 
Lower but Harder to Evade 


Reulers 

MOSCOW — Russia announced 
a series of measures Monday de- 
signed to help its ailing economy, 
cranbining the carrot oflower taxes 
with the stick of tough controls on 
companies’ bank accounts. 

Alexander Livshits, economic 
adviser to President Boris N. Yelt- 
sin, raid the moves, outlined in 
presidential decrees, would provide 
the legal base to continue Russia’s 
economic reforms. 

To combat tax evasion, the new 
regulations allow banks to open 
accounts only for companies that 
are registered with Russia’s tax au- 
thorities. Mr. Livshits said. 

In addition, a company can have 
only one bank account, to prevent 

it finom using bank transfers to hide 
money from authorities. 

But, in a move designed to stimu- 
late production, another decree or- 
dered the government to submil a 

■ "ti ■ ! 1 


draft law on reducing the number 
of taxes and scrapping preferential 
tax treatment. 

Taxes, including value-added tax 
and tax on profits, would fall from 
10 percent to 20 percent, and joint 
ventures and foreign-owned com- 
panies would receive tax breaks. 

Russian companies, most of 
them set up by officials of the old 
Soviet Union to fulfill a central 
plan, have been hit hard by Rus- 
sia’s economic transformation. 
Many are dosing or laying off 
workers because they cannot afford 
to pay wages or buy supplies. 

. the decrees in dude a proposal 
to solve companies’ debt problems. 
Mr. Livshits said the decree set a 
firm timetable for paying overdue 

debts and obliged companies to 
withdraw money from hard-cur- 
reacy accounts if they were unable 
to pay bins with money hdd in 
raWe accounts. 


The Derivatives Scramble 

Exchanges Rush to Cash In on Trend 


Btoombrrt; Buunats Newt 

LONDON — Over-the-counter derivatives have 
become the world’s hottest financial instruments 
despite calls for market regulation, and futures and 
options exchanges are scrambling to develop com- 
peting products to cash in on the trend. 

Exchanges in France and Italy began trading 
new derivatives on Friday that are designed to 
muscle in on rivals’ business. Other exchanges in 
Europe and beyond are forging alliances to secure 
market share. 

“It’scannibalistic," said Garv Delanv. a manag- 
ing director of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, 
where many European corporate treasurers buy 
and sell currency options to hedge their compa- 
nies' foreign exchange risks. 

Derivatives arc financial contracts that derive 
their price from something else — usually phvsical 
commodities, stocks, bonds or currency rates. Some 
derivatives, such as futures and options, are traded 
cm exchanges, which are generally more tighdy 
regulated than the over-the-counter market. 

But because the exchanges have to pay Tor the 
infrastructure of trading floors or computer-based 


opt for the Paris exchange. “We will try MATJFs 
options if we can gel a cheaper price,” he said. 

Many French corporations are adept at using 
some form of currency options because they earn 
most of their profits in currencies other than the 
franc, said Eric Benier. president of PaineWebber 

International SA in Park/' MAT IP's new options 
are bound to succeed," he said. 


Bui MATIF is not the only exchange trying to 
muscle in on rivals’ business. 


Italy's Telematic Options Exchange also 
launched a new product Friday, options on 10* 
year Italian government bond futures that directly 


trading systems and guarantee trades will be 
through 


While exchanges slug it out, 
central bankers and 
lawmakers have voiced 
concern that derivatives could 
destabilize the markets. 


matched through clearing houses, exchange trad- 
ing is more expensive for companies than the less- 
regulated over-the-counter market. 

The OTC market also alow companies to tailor 
products to hedge their individual risks, develop- 
ing contracts such as interest-rate swaps or options 
on currencies that expire at dates set by the cus- 
tomer rather than by an exchange. 

This flexibility has caused the over-ihe-counier 
market to boom and exchanges to rush to develop 
competing products. 

Eyeing the successes of the Philadelphia ex- 
change — where about $2 billion worth of curren- 
cy options trade each day — Marche h Tcrme 
International de France, the French futures and 
options exchange, began trading nearly identical 
options that let buyers lock in exchange rates for 
months to come. 


MATIF officials readily admit they’re after the 
Philadelphia Stock Exchange's business. 

“We hope French corporates will come bock to 
the domestic market" said Patricia Rouast, a 
spokeswoman for MATIF in Paris. 

While the exchanges slug it out many central 
bankers and lawmakers have voiced concern that 
the widespread use of derivatives ultimately could 
destabilize world financial markets. 

For the most part it is OTC derivatives that 
worry regulators. OTC derivatives have been 
blamed for the heavy losses revealed recently by 
such multinational companies as Procter & Gam- 
ble Co. and Air Products & Chemicals Inc. 

Meantime, the prizes in the French and VS. 
exchanges' bans- Atlantic tug-of-war are people 
such as Jean-Claude Coortoes. 

As the treasurer the Paris-based Valeo SA, it is 
Mr. Coortoes’s job to hedge against the currency 
risks the automobile-components maker takes 
wheat it exports products or buys materials from 
abroad. About 44 percent of Valeo’s products are 
sold tn France, with the rest going to other Europe- 
an countries and North and South America. 

Right now, Mr. Coortoes buys and sells options 

in i)» uva-tnc-amin maftd, to; w;2? MATIF 

offering options so dose to borne, he said he might 


compete with options offered by London Interna- 
tional Financial Futures Exchange. 

For their part, officials at L1FFE said they were 
not sweating. “We always welcome competition.” 
said Caroline Denton, a spokeswoman for the 
London exchange. She said L1FFE executives 
thought the rival options would help generate more 
business for both exchanges. 

Yet LIFFE has been unseated before by small er 
rivals that use screen-based systems to trade fu- 
tures and options — just like the Italian upstart. 

Last year. LIFFE took on the four-year-old 
Meff Renta Fiji in Barcelona by copying that 
exchange's 10-year Spanish bond futures. LIFFE 
was forced to' scrap its contract after just five 
months for lack of trading. 

Unlike Meff or the Italian exchange, the 10- 
year-old LIFFE relies on Cbicago-style open-out- 
ary trading, in which traders jostle in trading pits 
to shout buy and sell orders. 

MATIF mixes open-outcry and screen-based 


trading, while most smaller European exchanges. 

and Germany’s Deut- 


suefa as the Italian exchange and i 
sche Terrain borse. use only screens because they're 
cheaper than selling up a floor. 

The German exchange also recently announced 
it would list its contracts on the Globex after-hours 
electronic trading system, which was developed by 
the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago 
Board of Trade and Reulers Holdings PLC. 

While the fledgling German exchange is banking 
on Globex offering wider exposure to its contracts, 
the Board of Trad e has already abandoned the 
system and LIFFE recently decided not to join. 

The exchanges appear more concerned with de- 
veloping new ways to attract business than with the 
push toward tighter regulations of derivatives, and 
some central bank officials share that sentiment. 


“Exchange derivatives arc already out in the open 
and supervised." said Chris Bailey, a former men>- 
tor oT D kM of tngisnd's bond ustiine depart- 
ment and now a spokesman for the central bank. 


U.K. Nears 
Award ol 
Lottery 
license 


Reviers 

LONDON — In a dimax to 
months of secret deliberations. 
Britain wiD on Wednesday an- 
nounce the name of the lucky win- 
ner of its national lottery license. 

The first since 1826, the most 
recent in Europe and widely tipped 
to be the biggest in the worid, Brit- 
ain’s lottery will be an expensive 


gamble that is likdy to pay ofr 
sful 


richly for the successful bidder. 

Eight groups, including some big 

blue-chip names, are in the running 
but the smart money is billing it as 
a two-horse race between the Cam- 
dot consortium and the Lotco 
group, with Richard Branson, the 
Virgin Group r haiman, viewed as 
an outside possibility. 

Peter Davis, director of the lot- 
tery, will maintain the suspense Up 

to the last moment, notifying win- 
ner and losers alike simultaneously 
by fax on Wednesday morning. He 
has scrutinized their plans in com- 
plete secrecy and judged them ac- 
cording to propriety, security and 
their ability to make the most mon- 
ey for “good causes." 

Leisure analysts predicted the 
lottery, when up and running, 
would be one of Britain’s biggest 
industries, generating up to £4 bil- 
lion (S6 billion) a year in revenue. 

One bidder reckoned that his 
proposal would make £31 billion 
over the seven-year life of the li- 
cense. This would allow profit for 
the operator of £70 to £100 million, 
analysts said.

Reuters 


ATHENS — The drachma 
gained ground Monday, and Greek

slightly, as the central bank persist- 
ed in its defense of the currency. 


Currency dealers said investors, 
disappointed that the drachma had 
not been devalued ova- the week- 
end. were selling Deutsche marks 
as the governor of the Bank of 
Greece, Ioannis Boutos, said, “We 
wiB proceed with our kard-tiracL- 
raa policy, and we will support it 
with all necessary means." 


Pressure on Greek markets also 
was eased because many other Eu- 
ropean markets were closed for a 
holiday. 

The Bank of Greece had a $30 
miHioo inflow at its dally currency 
fixing, a dealer said, pushing the 
Deutsche mark down by 1.1 per- 
cent. The drachma had declined by 
12 percent against the mark in the 
previous 10 days. 

The one-month Athens inter- 
bank offered rate, an official refer- . 
enoerate, was set at 144.09 percent,- 
down from 160 percent Friday.

Weak Outlook

Compiled br Our Staff From Dupatcha 

TOKYO— Nintendo Co. repon- 
“ co Monday a sharp fall in profit 
for us latest financial year, and its 
puUook is weak, according to ana- 
lysts and the video-game maker. 

Risng competition, lack of Eu- 
rop«n demand and the strong yen 
combined to cut consolidated net 
profit by 41 percent, to 5165 bil- 
bon yen ($505 million) from 88.61 
buBoa, while sales fell to 485.61 
biHiofl yen, down 23 percent. 

C urre nt profit, a broad pretax 
measme used by Japanese compa- 
nies that includes investment and 
nonoperating results, fdl 44 per- 
cent, to 92.83 billion yen. 

Nintendo’s weakness mirrored re-

rival Sega Enterprises Ltd..' which 
said its current profit fell 22 percent 
Iastyear, to 4153 billion yen.

Japanese Banks Due to Post 
Faffing Profits for 5th Year 


Reiaen 

TOKYO — Japan’s giant com- 
mercial and trust Hanks, which have 
been trying hard to restore their 
asset quality, are expected this week 
to announce declines in profits for 
the fifth year in a row, analysts and 
financial sources said Monday. 

These sources also said earnings 
were likely to r emain poor in the 
current year, ending March 31, 
1995. They said the banks were stiD 
struggling to trim ihdr huge load of 
nonperfomring loans to property 
ventures dating bom the late 1980s, 
although there were signs that 
growth in bad loans was slowing. 

Japan’s 11 top city, or commer- 
cial, Hanks are due to announce 
earning s Thursday, with seven ma- 
jor trust banks and three long-term 
credit banks reporting Friday. 


an average 45 percent decline in 
parent-company c ur re n t profit 

The declines, he said, would re- 
sult mainly from write-offs of 
about 2.4 trillion yen ($23 billion) 
of problem loans in the year ended 
March 3 1, 1994, doable the amount 
written off the previous year. 

Mr. N ishimora said he expected 
the trust banks to post an average 
decline of 30 percent in parent cur- 
rent profit despite increases of 
about that same size in operating 
profit 

Operating profit is pretax profit 
from ordinary banking and bond 
business. Current profit, also be- 
fore tax, includes gains and kisses 
on investments and other nonoper- 
ating activities, such as setting 
aside loan-loss reserves. 


Enchiro NMrimnra, analyst at 
Yamakhi Research, institute of Se- 
curities & Economics, predicted 
that the 11 dty banks would post.

from financial sources, bad loans

By James Stemgold 

Mew York Tuna Service 

TOKYO — Japanese officials 
have contended for months that 
they cannot accept American de- 
mands for guaranteed increases in 
imports because the measures 
would amount to interference with 
the free play of the markets. Yet. 
in another realm, the Japanese 
government has engaged in one of 
the heaviest waves of market inter- 
vention in memory in an attempt 
to manage the value of the yen and 
keep Japan’s exports flowing. 

Data on Japan's foreign-ex- 
change reserves show that since 
the beginning of last year, the 
Bank of Japan has used more 
than $35 billion in an effort to 
brake a sharp rise in the value of 
the yen against the dollar, one of 
the most sustained and costly 
campaigns to control currency 
values ever attempted 

The dollar was fixed Monday 
at 104.94 yen in Tokyo, down 
from 124.35 at the sum of 1993. 
In 1990, a dollar bought 145 yen. 

Some economists say the inter- 
vention amounts to a policy of 
controlling Japan's trade flows, 
since the yen’s rise is expected to 
reduce the huge trade surplus by 
making Japanese goods more ex- 
pensive overseas and by encour- 
aging imports. 

Their concern was underscored 
by the release on Thursday of 
figures that showed the American 
merchandise trade deficit with 


form-minded Japanese govern- 
ments in office since last summer 

have said they share this goal. But 
they have asked for more lime to 
devise a plan. 

Nevertheless, the Bank of Ja- 
pan, which operates under the 
Influence of the Finance Minis- 
try, has consistently sold yen to 
buy dollars, trying to counter 
heavy purchases of the yen by 
investors, corporations and spec- 
ulators, both here and abroad. 

Japanese government officials 
have said the bank's intervention 
has been aimed at calming jittery 
markets or smoothing out the 
many excessively volatile swings 
in trading. 

They nave also said the yen’s 
appreciation does not reflect un- 
derlying economic factors such as 
the anemic economic growth rate 
or low Japanese interest rates. 

Privately, some officials char- 
acterize the heavy intervention as 
a holding action. The logic is that 
if the yen's rise can be halted long 
enough for the government to en- 
act a credible program to reduce 
the surplus, the market will take 
over and push the yen lower. 

The problem has been that the 
previous and current coalition 
governments have been so weak 
that they have been unable to 
push through such a plan. 


In some instances, the Bank of 
Japan has had help from abroad. 
The Federal Reserve Board in the 
United States and other central 
banks acted in concert with the 
Bank of Japan earlier this month, 
spending billions of dollars when 
the yen suddenly lurched and ig- 
nited fears of disruptions in stock 
and bond markets- 


But a number of economists 

say the sustained nature of the 
Japanese intervention and the 
huge amounts involved make 
clear that the effort is an attempt 
to interfere with market forces 
and. ultimately, manage trade in 
Japan's favor. 

“They are spending money like 
water,” said Richard Koo. a se- 
nior economist at the Nomura 
Research Institute. “If you are 
saying you are in favor’ of free 
trade, (hat means that you should 
let the yen go. If you intervene as 
they have, you are saying you 
don't want the price-adjustment 
mechanism to work. You can’t 
have it both ways." 

One of the best measures of a 
central bank's intervention in the 
currency markets is its reserves of 
foreign currencies and gold. Econ- 
omists and Bank of Japan officials 
say that increases generally reflect 
occasions when the hank has been 


Supporting the Yen 


Japan soared to $5.8 billion in 
March, the third-largesl monthly 


March, the third-largesl monthly 
deficit on record, from $4.63 bil- 
lion in February. 

Critics have also said the inter- 
vention flies in the face of a re- 
sponsible interplay of supply and 
demand, a principle to which Ja- 
pan’s government says it adheres. 

“Tins has been a waste of mon- 
ey," said Kazuafci Harada. the 
chief economist at the Sanwa Re- 
search Institute. "The reason for 
.the yen’s rise is tbe trade surplus. 
Ana judging from the continuing 
large size of the surplus, 1 think we 
can expect an even stronger yea” 

G Fred Bergs ten, head of tbe 
Institute for International Eco- 
nomics in Washington, agrees: 
This is tbe most dramatic exam- 
ple of managed trade in the rela- 
tionship between the U.S. and Ja- 
pan over the last year or so. It's 
vay dear that the yen would have 
strengthened weQ beyond 100 in 
the absence of this intervention." 

The issue touches on one of the 
mast sensitive aspects of the Unit- 
ed States’ troubled relationship 
with Japan — not just Japan's 
ga pi n g surplus, but what methods 
are appropriate for tackling it

selling yen and buying foreign cur- 
rencies. usually dollars. 

Since February 1993. the value 
of Japan’s reserves has risen from 
S69.15 billion to S104.6 billion 
last month, a record high, accord- 
ing to the Bank of Japan. The 
reserves are likely to increase by 
S5 billion or more this month, 
economists say, because of fur- 
ther intervention. 

In the last decade, the major 
industrial nations acted jointly on 
several occasions to manage ex- 
change rates to achieve their com- 
mon policy objectives. 

During a meeting at the Plaza 
Hotel in New York in September 
1985, tbe governments agreed to 
reduce tbe value of the dollar and 
increase the value of the yea in 
part to lower Japan’s widening 
trade surplus. 

The surplus did decline tempo- 
rarily, but now ii has risen to 
more than SI 30 billion annuall y. 

When President Bill Clinton 
took office, his administration 
vowed to attack the Japanese sur- 
pluses aggressively. After various 
Treasury officials hinted that 
they would not object to an ap- 
preciation of tbe yea traders got 
the message. 

The dollar fell to lows of al- 
most 100 yen in August and was 
again near that level earlier this 
month. 

Tbe yen’s rise has hurt Japa- 
nese exporters badly, ma Icing it 
unprofitable for man y of them to 
sell goods overseas. Economists 
here estimate that exporters 
break even at a level of about 1 15 
yen to the dollar and begin to lose 
money below that. 

In addition, the slump in ex- 
ports has slowed the economy, 
which is already in the midst of its 
longest recession since World 
Warll. 

Many economists thus contend 
that Japan should take stronger 
measures to reduce its trade sur- 
plus to avoid the punishment of a 
rising yea This could be date 
with a large increase in public- 
works spending, tax reductions, 
interest-rale cuts or some combi- 
nation of these steps. 

Toshihiro Kiribuchi, a former 
Finance Ministry official and now 
an executive at Omron Corp, an 
electronics manufacturer, said he 
sympathized with tbe Bank of Ja- 
pan’s heavy interventioa 

He contended, however, that 
the ultimate solution is not pour- 
ing money into the currency mar- 
ket but aggressive economic poli- 
cies to reduce the surplus. 

“To stop this, the Japanese 
government has to come forward 
with a very effective package of 
economic stimulus measures, 
lower interest rates and come up 
with more deregulation.*" Mr. 
Kiri bu chi said.

Bringing the World to the Classroom 


P rospective employers will- 
ing to pay the price for a 
business-school graduate 
expect to get an executive 
who can go into action right away in a 
rapidly changing and increasingly 
complex environment. At the same 
time, European and U.S. schools are 
competing ever more savagely for mar- 
ket share and recognition. This means 
that top schools everywhere are strug- 
gling to adapt their teaching methods To 
meet the new demands. 

“Since we launched our first MBA 
and MSC programs back in the 1960s. 
the aim of these courses has changed 
considerably," says Leo Munav, direc- 
tor of Cranfield School of Management 
in Britain. ‘Today, we concentrate our 
teaching efforts on developing personal 
skills such as problem solving and 
teamwork." 

The changes, however, are still less 
than revolutionary. A 1993 survey car- 
ried out among 59 European graduate 
schools by the Brussels-based Euro- 
pean Foundation for Management De- 
velopment. for instance, showed that 
lectures sdll accounted for 40.5 percent 
of total teaching time. Project work, 
case studies and group discussions 
took up 34.6 percent, 1 6.4 percent and 
S.6 percent respectively, while com- 


School in Denmark. The fundamental 
purpose of this association is the cre- 
ation of a common European business 
qualification known as the CEMS 
Master. 

‘The CEMS Master, awarded to stu- 
dents in addition to the degree granted 
by their home institution, undeniably 
adds value to students' qualifications 
on graduation," says Staffan Buren- 
stam Linder, president of the Stock- 
holm School of Economics and chair- 
man of CEMS. The procedure for set- 
ting up this additional qualification in- 
volves the creation of common stan- 
dards among member schools and the 
progressive harmonization of degree 
courses. 

“Case studies play a very important 
role both in our degree courses and our 
executive programs." says Jose Maria 
Pons, MBA director at 1ESE (Instituto 
de Estudios Superiores de Empresa) in 
Barcelona. "However, we use them as 
a springboard to collective thinking 
rather than as an illustration of a single 
solution to a problem. Employed in the 
latter way. cases can become quickly 
outdated, and even more importantly. 


puter simulations notched up a mere 
3.8 percent of the total. 


A body of European cases 
is now finally emerging 


Paradoxically, at the same time that 
European business schools are compet- 
ing for students, many are also looking 
for ways to link up in cooperative net- 
works. The main purpose of this is to 
provide more cross-cultural courses at 
the European level by establishing net- 
works and exchanges of students be- 
tween different European countries. 
The procedure also helps to improve 
economies of scale by pooling re- 
sources at a time when the marketplace 
is demanding ever mote sophisticated - 
teaching and research facilities. 

One prominent example of this ap- 
proach is the Community of European 
Management Schools. CEMS compris- 
es 12 universities and business schools 
in different European countries, includ- 
ing Cologne University in Gennany, 
the London School of Economics in 
Britain and die Copenhagen Business 


they fail to convey the complexity of 
real-life situations." 

Originally, most cases were devel- 
oped by American institutions like 
Harvard, but a body of European case 
material is finally emerging. European 
schools making a major input in this 
connection include the Institute for 
Management Development iIMD) in 
Switzerland and INSEAD in France. 
Cranfield coordinates the European 
Case Clearing House (ECCH). 

“The vital point about case teaching 
is that its strength depends as much on 
the quality of the teacher as on the 
quality of the case, 1 " says Gary Edel- 
man, who was recently voted test lec- 
turer by students at the Rotterdam 
School of Management “Many Euro- 
pean professors feel happier with the 
traditional academic-lecture approach. 


ular emphasis on its personal-project 
approach. “The purpose is to identify a 


approach. “The purpose is to identify a 
topic that the student explores over the 
course of the program. This aims at de- 
veloping research skills in a real-life 
American business setting," says RJA 
Professor Jack Forget. 

Many degree courses include a re- 
quirement for students to spend part of 
their course time working in a real-life 
business environment The internation- 
al MBA program run by the Rotterdam 
School of Management provides one 
example. “At the end of their first year.

and ir you force the wrong people to 
adopt the case method, it gives the 
whole procedure a bad name." 

SDA Bocconi in Milan is one of the 
growing number of schools that makes 
use of computer simulations for teach- 
ing purposes. "For example, we have 
devised a model-building simulation 
using a spreadsheet format, which al- 
lows sludenb, to work in small groups 
on different decision models and to 
compete with one another," says MBA 
Program Director Pamela Adams. 
[This helps students to appreciate the 
interactions between different issues 
and to learn how to operate in an inte- 
grated way." 

The simulation might bring together, 
for example, information and issues 
front sectors such as marketing, fi- 
nance and production, and it imitates 
the complex information Hows within 
real businesses. "This approach en- 
courages students to examine both 
quantitative and qualitative considera- 
tions” explains Ms. Adams. 

Other computer-assisted projects 
launched by SDA Bocconi include a fi- 
nance, banking and macroeconomic 
simulation called ArcoFund. Students 
are divided into small groups, and 
each group is given a notional capital 
sum of $100 million to play with. This 
then has to be "invested” in stock-ex- 
change indexes. “The driving force 
behind this game is the competition 
that it generates between the groups.” 
says Ms. Adams. "The simulation con- 
tinues throughout the year, and we see 
who has done test in November.”

all our students have to spend three 
weeks analyzing a chosen company on 
a cross-functional basis." says Dean J. 
Wil Foppen. “Further company pro- 
jects form pan of the second year also.” 

At Manchester Business School in 
Britain. MBA students are divided into 
project groups of five or six to work on 
consulting assignments for companies. 
"One project involves advising compa- 
nies on mergers and acquisitions strate- 
gies while another looks at overseas 
market opportunities.” says Manches- 
ter MBA Director Peter Barrar. "Stu- 
dents have to calculate what their costs 
will be to carry out the project, and 
they then submit a bid on this basis to 
the prospective customer company.” 

One example in the mergers and ac- 


quisitions project involved bringing ex- 
ecutives of the Blue Circle group of 
companies to the school, so that they 
could discuss their M&A strategy with 
students. Participants in the course then 
undertook research aimed at identify- 
ing potential target companies. 

‘This project brought students face 
to face with the need in a real-life situa- 
tion to combine analytical skills based 
on logic with softer skills connected 
with handling people situations," Mr. 
Barrar says. "For instance, under the 
first heading, they had to look at issues 
such as valuing businesses in accor- 
dance with their equity bases. The sec- 
ond aspect required them to consider 
factors such as the best way to avoid 
making experienced directors in the 


target company feel they were under 
threat when it would be important to 
retain their services after the takeover." 

IMD runs a scheme called TIE 
(Team Initiative Enterprise). "Students 
work in self-selected groups," says 
MBA Director Kamran Kashani. 
‘Each of these has to come up with a 
basic idea and a precise definition and 
then put it into practice.” 

The Groupe ESC Lyon provides a 
further variant. “One of our projects 
aims at motivating students to create a 
business.” says ESC Lyon Vice Presi- 
dent Philippe Albert. “Getting partici- 
pants to create a working enterprise is 
one of the best teaching methods you 
can devise."

r i~* '.Hil ay Haskins, di- 
..^^J rector-general of 
... M l ^ c European 
Foundation for 
Management Development 
in Brussels, recently dis- 
cussed the outlook for inter- 
national business education 
with Axel Krause, corporate 
editor of the International 
Herald Tribune. Following 
arc excepts from the inter- 
view: 

How many of your nearly 
200 European business- 
school members are now 
tied into some kind of net- 
work. or iiueniiifitjriiil asso- 
ciation. with another busi- 
ness school ? 

The vast majority - with 
at least one other school. 
The strong tendency has 
been privileging internation- 
al links and particularly 
those programs' with conti- 
nuity. 

/\ this a response to the 
apparent end of the Euro- 
pean recession'.’ 

Members are re-evaluat- 


ing their programs, just as 
companies are re-evuluating 
their costs of operating. An- 
other new effect is that some 
companies in similar indus- 
tries are joining together to 
form their own business- 
training schools. This en- 
ables them to be very' prac- 
tice-oriented. 

Is it trite, as some deans 
saw that there are no profits 
in management education 
and that mans schools lose

money. 

That may be the case for 
some schools. Most business 
schools are still surviving, 
even though they are also 
going through a cost-cutting, 
cost-evaluafion exercise. 

Does the trend you de- 
scribe also reflect a move 
away from MBAs? 

What everyone is realiz- 
ing today is that we arc talk- 
ing about a continuous 
process in business educa- 
tion. The MBA is just one 
small aspect of management 
development. In fact, most 


EFMD’s Gay Haskins: "The 
strong tendency has been privi- 
leging international links . " 


business schools make most 
of their money thn-ugh ex- 
ecutive programs. 

What is": he \in.v/e most 
important question asked 
about costs if management 
education'.' 

As reflected in demands 
on us by our corporate mem- 
bers for workshop'-, the 
question is: how do you 
measure the cost and ihe ef- 
fectiveness of management 
development? We hope to 
provide a tentative answer 
during a session at our annu- 
al conference in June in 
Copenhagen focused on im- 
pact on the bottom line. 
There will also be a related 
session dealing with impact 
on business performance. 
That is the question. 

Turning to academic rv- 
seaivh in management edu- 
cation. w!u:t tUM" questions 
an' being asked? 

A study was recently done 


in Britain culling for devel- 
oping much more relevance 
of research to business. 
Elsewhere among our mem- 
bers. tlic reaction is the same 
- namely, that business ex- 
ecutives say repeatedly that 
research being conducted to- 
day is not relevant to their 
needs. Others urge a new 
partnership in research. The 
problem is translating con- 
ceptual research, and the 
phrases and words used to 
express it. into something 
that is meaningful and un- 
derstandable to business. 

How many of your mem- 
bers participate in doctoral 
programs? 

About 40. About one-third 
are university-linked, [in- 
cluding! all our members in 
England - such as Manches- 
ter. Warwick, the London 
Business School. Then there 
is Erasmus Lfniversity in 
Rotterdam. Stockholm 
School of Economics, 
among oihers. all of which 
confer doctoral degrees. 
Keep in mind that the PhD. 
while important, is not the 
only source of research. 

£>i< you consider cases 
part of the research 
pit >cess? 

They are as much part of 
the research as they are of 
the teaching process. Cases 
can give academics entry 
into companies and then 
help bring practical experi- 
ence back into the class- 
room. particularly if the case 
is from one's region of the 
world. So many cases have 
been American, and often

not appropriate for the Euro- 
pean environment, so it is 
good that we are now get- 
ting cases from Eastern and 
Western Europe. This is 
why we sponsor an annual 
case-writing competition. 

How do yon explain the 
success of the use of Euro- 
pean cases ill American 
business schools ? 

There are more and more 
demands in American 
schools to internationalize 
the curricula, and (European 
cases] offer a valuable 
source for doing that. I only 
wish we had more good cas- 
es on Eastern Europe or on 
business in China. 

What is your reaction to 
the establishment in Cer- 



Women still account for less than 10 percent of the managers At Britain's largest organizations* ^ 


many of a two-year execu- 
tive MBA program by 
Deutsche Aerospace and 
Mercedes with Britain's 
Henley management col- 
lege. which uses distance 
learning? 

It is a trend. British Air- 
ways developed its own 
MBA. and the Danish Man- 
agement Center has a new 
MBA developed by a con- 
sortium of companies. There 
are an increasing number of 
partnerships between com- 
panies and business schools. 
But the ultimate test of the 
success of these will depend 
on the quality of ihe students 
paxluced. 

How do you react to re- 
cent surx eys showing that 
only about 5 percent of 
women in European busi- 
ness make it to the top 
ranks? 

There are a lot of success- 
ful women in small busi- 
nesses, and that is where 
much of the growth is. The 
reason is that it is often easi- 
er to set up your ow n busi- 
ness rather than to integrate 
vour stvle and vourself into 


How to Attract Women 


he percentage of women students 
at Europe's major business 
schools continues to rise steadily, 
and many insutuiions are launch- 
ing specific campaigns to attract more 
women to their courses. Manchester Busi- 
ness School, for example, began a special 
recruitment drive just over three years ago 
that features initiatives such os the Guardian 
Women in Management 

Scholarship. 

Overall, one-third of first- Snerial r 
year Manchester MBA stu- . 
dents are now female, with u7TV€S CIT i 

4S on the pan-rime program 

and 24 percent on the full- 11-1 '" H" 

rime course. Paradoxically, this trend coin- 
cides with the publication of a new report by 
the institute of Management and Remunera- 
tion Economics showing that the percentage 
of women managers in Britain’s largest or- 
ganizations has fallen from 10.2 percent last 
year to 9 A percent currently. 

INSE.4D says that it will more readily 
consider applications from younger candi- 
dates if they are women since they tend to be 
more mature than young men of the same 
age. "At die other end of the spectrum, we 


Special recruitment 
drives are launched 


are also very happy to entertain applications 
from women in their, early : thirties who bi^l? 
earlier interrupted; thfcir careers to start a' 
family." says Helen Henderson,' INSEAD’s 
director of admissions. ; .8 ...... LL..‘ 

A recent survey of its 59 membef schbols; 
carried out by the European^ Toundatiorr for 
Management Development showed, the 
highest percentage of female business suL 
dents in Finland C44 per- :

Placement experience stiU varies? “Be- 
cause of the uraditkmal role of women.- inter- 
viewers cannot fully accept a self-assertive 
presentation by a woman candidate, whereas ' 
they might consider this a positive attribute; 
in a man," says BonnieMoy. (Erector of the 
Career Planning Office at the Rotterdam. 
School of Management: The Groupe HEC in 
France, however, says it detects .no obvious ;

consortia allow' for more in-

As business schools be- 
come more and more depen-

replacing traditional resume 
books. Recruiters can per- 
form a scan for a particular 
specialty or interest. With 
the more cumbersome 
books, the interviewer 
would have to read each re- 
sume to find a suitable can-

schools still send out the 
books as a back-up. such 
prestigious schools as the 
University of Chicago and 
Columbia University have 
abandoned the “hard copy"

any business 
H I f J s schools used to 
f i Pride them- 
selves on their 
detached and scholarly ap- 
proach to teaching and re- 
s eareh. Today, pushed by 
cash shortages and competi- 
tion. they see their role more 
os eager sellers in the corpo- 
rate marketplace, and all the 
major institutions are strug- 


gling to forge closer rela- 
tionships with business. 

Despite such trends, many 
leading European businesses 

continue to believe that few 
schools are as yet fully at- 
tuned to their precise needs. 
Often a particular difficulty 
is persuading faculty mem- 
bers to change work meth- 
ods to which they have been 
long accustomed. It is gener- 
ally accepted, however, that 
oig management centers are 
making major efforts to get 
closer to the marketplace. 

One example is the way in 
which Ashridge Manage- 
ment College in Britain re- 
cently went about the job of 
tackling the management- 
development needs of the 
Volkswagen company. Key 
Ashridge staff traveled to 
the company to meet all the 
relevant players and to find 
out in detail what Volkswa- 
gen had in mind and what 
was required. On the basis 
of these meetings, the col- 
lege drew up a specially tai- 
lored program. 


INSEAD in France offer* 
another example. “Fifty per- 
cent of our total activity is 
devoted to executive educa- 
tion. and our whole ap- 
proach is based on the idea 
of creating partnerships with 
businesses." says Arnoud 
De Meyer, director of exec- 
utive education at INSEAD. 
“A big part of our company- 
specific work is concerned 
with managing change and 
helping corporations to 
maintain internal cohesion/* 
The school, for instance, or- 
ganized a special program 
for the ABN and AMRO 
banks in the Netherlands at 
the time of their merger, and 
it has also been called in by 
French state-owned opera- 
tions about to be privatized. 

Further examples of this 
approach are provided by 
the company-specific cours- 
es organized by HEC Man- 
agement, the executive- 
training subsidiary of the 
Groupe HEC. “Recent pro- 
jects we have undertaken in- 
clude initial training of the 
marketing work force of a 
European aeronautic compa- 
ny and organizing a general 
management cycle to fit the 
training requirements of 400 
executives in a European 
service company," says 
HEC Management Director 
Olivier Bruei. 

In addition, HEC Manage- 
ment recently assisted a 
French bank organization in

creating a school for top-lev- 
el executives. “This mingled 
Groupe HEC pedagogic and 
technical expertise with the 
professional know-how of 
managers/' says Mr. Brucl. 
“In this way. we were able to 
introduce a modem, efficient 
and dynamic training system 
into the heart of the organi- 
zation's structure." 

Giving companies an ef- 
fective say in the way 
schools are organized and in 
the content of their courses 
is another method that is 
widely adopted to cement 
relations. “Both Spanish and 
multinational companies are 
represented on our govern- 
ing board," says Ignacio de 
la Vega, professor of entre- 
preneurship at the Instituto 
de Empresa in Madrid. “We 
also actively seek corporate 
sponsorship for professorial 
chairs, although Spanish tax 
law does not moo vale com- 
panies in this respect.” * 

IMD in Lausanne is struc- 
tured around some 120 cor- 
porate “stakeholders/’ who 
interact with the faculty on 
teaching and research and 
who receive a package of 
services from the institute in 
return. “We organize bench- 
marking workshops for all 
our stakeholders throughout 
the year," says Paul Adams, 
IMD's director of corporate 
affairs. “Moreover, our ex- 
ecutive courses are angled 
strongly toward tailored ac- 
tivities and consortium pro- 
grams that enable partici- 
pants to dovetail workplace 


learning with their atten- 
dance at IMD." 

Many French business 
schools are connected with 
local chambers of com- 
merce. which provide pan of 
their funding from taxes col- 
lected from Wsines.ses in the 
area. 

The Groupe ESC Lyon 
provides a particular exam- 
ple. “Our structure is based 
on a partnership between the 
chamber of commerce and 
regional businesses, which 
are strongly represented on 
our executive board." says 
Philippe Albert, the school's 
vice president. 

Another cooperative ven- 
ture between business and 
academe is the Institut du 
Fran^ais dcs Affaires dc 
Reims, created last year at 
the initiative of the local 
chamber of commerce, the 
University of Reims and 
other groups. IDFAR aims 
to educate foreign execu- 
tives in business French and 
in French business proce- 
dure. 

F'aced with reduced de- 
mand for business gradu- 
ates, schools also have to 
pay closer attention to com- 
panies' recruiting require- 
ments. “Spanish companies 
tell us that they are looking 
for recruits who can think 
and take decisions in a more 
structured fashion,” says 
Carlos Cavall£, dean of 
IESE in Barcelona. “This 
means, for instance, that we 
have to encourage students 
to adopt a more ngorous ap- 


proach when analyzing and 
commenting on cases."" 

The Rotterdam School of 
Management goes one step 
further and brings in compa- 
ny executives fo lecture in 
some of its courses. “We 
have to make sure this does 
not become a simple market- 
ing exercise and that compa- 
nies do not use ihe opportu- 
nity merely to identify high- 
flyers. but it provides a use- 
ful and practical supplement 
to more traditional teach- 
ing," says Kai Peters, the 
school's projects and corpo- 
rate-relations manager. 

Against this background 
of diversity and competition 
among Europe’s business 
school's, the Brussels-bused 
European Foundation for 
Management Development 
offers a meeting point for 
providers and consumers of 
management-development 
services. “Currently, we 
have 320 business and man- 
agement-school members, 
and we offer a platform for 
dialogue/* says EFMD As- 
sociate Director Bernadette 
Conraihs. 

The EFMD is also in- 
volved in promoting man- 
agement education in devel- 
oping countries and Eastern 
Europe. Several of these ini- 
tiatives are carried out on an 
agency basis for the Euro- 
pean Commission. M.R. 


ncreased busi- 
ness opportuni- 
ties abroad and 
the globalization 
of U.S. commerce have in- 
fluenced ihe popularity of 
U.S. business schools with 
branches in Europe. These 
schools are continuing to 
seek a foothold in Europe 
largely because they are 
faced with a dwindling pool 
of students at home and be- 
cause a European outpost 
gives an MBA program 
added cachet at home. 

Most U.S. schools operate 

, under a partnership agree- 
ment with a European 
school, which allows stu- 
dents and faculty on both 
campuses to move back and 
forth. Many lesser-known 
colleges are now adding 
studies abroad, following in 
the footsteps of such top/tier 
schools as Boston Universi- 
ty. the University of Hart- 
ford and Webster University 
of St. Louis (which began a 
Geneva campus in 1979). 
Purdue University in Indi- 
ana, for example, has begun 
a joint program with the 
Ecole Superieure de Com- 
merce de Rouen. 

Some schools find a 
niche: The University of 
Pittsburgh, for instance’ has 
concentrated on Eastern Eu- 
rope, and Pittsburgh now 
has programs in Prague. St. 
Petersburg and Budapest. In 
January, the Simon School 
at the University of 
Rochester will open its sec- 
ond Eu5opean executive 
MBA program in Bern. The 
partnership with the Univer- 
sity Bern supplements an 
already existing program in 
Roneraam. 

According to Dick 
Kwartler, publisher of the 
MBA Newsletter, the 
growth of American pro- 
grams abroad parallels the 
huge increase in Europeans 
studying on U.S. campuses. 
Europeans constitute up to 
30 percent of the student 
body of many colleges; at 
Yale, the figure has reached 
33 percent. This reverse 


trend is reflected in the 
growth in the number of 
once-scarce European sites 
where prospective students 
can take the Graduate Man- 
agement Admission Test. 
"International enrollment is 
a way to counter declining 
domestic enrollment," says 
Mr. Kwartler. 

Perhaps the most closely 
watched European outpost is 
the one to be established on 
July 1 in Barcelona by the 
University of Chicago, one 
of America's most respected 
business schools. The pan- 
time MBA program is 
unique insofar as it repre- 
sents the first time a top-tier 
school has attempted a Euro- 
pean MBA program without 
the assistance of a local uni- 
versity. “It is the first stand- 
alone U.S. executive pro- 
gram," Mr. Kwanler notes. 
“It will be pivotal in terms of 
whether other U.S. schools 
will follow.” 

More important are al- 
liances - “the new buzzword 
in management education,” 
according to Mr. Kwanler - 
between U.S. and European 
schools, as well as with Eu- 
ropean companies. 

In October 1993, the Uni- 
versity of Michigan devel- 
oped a program in Hong 
Kong for Cathay Pacific that 
links professors in Ann Ar- 
bor to students in Hong 
Kong via interactive TV. 
“Interactive TV opens up a 
whole new world," Mr. 
Kwartler says. “It will not 
matter where the student is 


enrolled/' The biggest limi- 
tation on the more tradition- 
al partnership programs be- 
tween U.S. and European 
universities is American stu- 
dents' notorious lack of fa- 
cility in foreign languages. 
Only a few* prestigious 
schools on the Continent, 
such as INSEAD and IMD,

the University of Chicago. 


conduct classes in English. 

One drawback to the Eu- 
ropean programs is that they 
may draw au-ay registrants 
from the home campus. The 
Massachusetts of Technolo- 
gy, a well-regarded business 
school, had experimented 
with a European program a 
few times, but it decided not 
to continue after the pro- 
gram proved to be too ex- 
pensive and threatened to 
take top-quality students 
away from the Cambridge 
campus.

B efore they start 
attending the 
course, my stu- 
dents think it is a 
Mickey Mouse subject." 
says Max Torres, who teach- 
es ethics to international 
MBA students at 1ES£ in 
Barcelona. “By the time they 
finish, they go away saying 
it is a real blood-and-guLs is- 
sue." 

Business schools' height- 
ened interest in ethics and 


corporate responsibility is 
fueled by a bewildering ar- 
ray of factors. These range 
from public disenchantment 
with seemingly endless rev- 
elations of financial scandals 
and corruption involving 
husincss and guvemmenis to 
the social role of companies 
in countries struggling with 
high unemployment, envi- 
ronmental worries and con- 
flicting development priori- 
ties inlhe Third World.

"There are two basic ways 
of approaching this subject 
in business teaching." says 
Eric Briys, dean of ISA at 
Jouy-en-Josas in France. 
"The first is to integrate it in- 
directly into the overall 
course, and the second is to 
set up specific seminars in 
which students can examine 
their concerns and percep- 
tions." 

In pursuit of this second 
idea. ISA has set up a series 
of discussion sessions al a 
center for businesses created 
by the Benedictine Mon- 
astery of Ganagobic in the 
French Alps. 

"Students are surprised to 
discover how close the 
monks are to everyday prob- 
lems." says Mr. Briys. 
“Moreover, the Ganagobie 
center also sen es businesses 
in a very practical .sense. For 
instance, the center was re- 
cently asked to assist the Ac- 
cor hotel group in defining 
the group's approach to the 
, concept of hospitality. This 
is something the Bene- 
dictines know a lot about." 

The Manchester Business 
School in Britain has estab- 
lished a chair in corporate 
responsibility sponsored by 
the Co-operative Bank. 
"One of the central issues 
we have to address Ls the 

fact that business has be- 
come the dominant force in 
modem, advanced societies, 
and that the authority of 
politicians has been corre- 
spondingly downgraded." 
says Brian Harvey, who has 
been appointed to the Co- 
operative Bank Professor- 
ship. "Accordingly, we have 
to ask whether companies 
can act simply like corporate

environment impassively to

register trend > that can bring 
them profit, or v. hether they 
have to a^ume a more ac- 
tive role. In the narrower 
perspective of protecting 
corporate reputation, compa- 
nies need to build in a set of 
corporate values without try- 
ing to control everything 
from the center.” 

Business .schools vary in 
their teaching methods and 
objectives, but all agree that 
it ls impossible to lay down 
a 'lingle proper approach to 
ethical dilemma.-, much less 
to propose neat answers. 
This applies even to institu- 
tions with specific religious 
connections such as ESADE 
and iESE. which are linked 
to the Jesuit.- and Opus Det. 
respectively. 

“A major aim of the 

ISA students use 
ti Be necu dine 
business center 


course is to gel students to 
examine what harm they 
cause to themselves as indi- 
viduals by acting unethical- 
ly." says Mr. Torres. “Try- 
ing to decide on the course 
to take on the basis of the 
harm caused to others by a 
specific line of action soon 
leads to inextricable conun- 
drums." Mr. Torres also 
stresses that the task is par- 
ticularly tricky in the case of 
international classes mixing 
students from different 
backgrounds with different 
approaches to business 

methods. 

“Our students crime from 
many different countries and 
cultures." says Luis M. 
Puses. director-general of 
ESADE. “We try "to identity 
common ground on ethical 
issues." According to Henri - 
Claude de Betiignies. who 
leaches ethics at INSEA D. 
the objective h to provide 
students with the necessary 
tools and models to organize 
a conceptual framework and 
to be aware of ihe conse- 
quences of alternative deci- 
sions. 

"The American idea of 
drawing up a corporate code 
of conduct is now mov ing to 
Europe, but in my view this 
approach docs "not really 
solve the problem." says Mr. 
de Betiignies. “ir. the United 
States, this type of action is 
based essentially on the be- 
lief that being seen to be eth- 
ical pays off.' which is not an 
ethical response."

The Groupe ESC Lyon re- 
cently launched a study on 
business ethics and Euro- 
pean civilization in the con- 
text of a professorial chair 
sponsored by two French 
companies - Lyonnaise des 
Eaux-Dumez and Groupe 
Schneider. Professor Fred 
Seidel of ESC Lyon exam- 
ined the transposition of a 
code of conduct drawn up by 
a U.S. multinational to its 
French subsidiary. His re- 
port showed that the mere 
process of translating the 
code from English into 
French subtly and signifi- 
cantly changed the meaning 
of several key concepts. 

Joaquin Garratda, who 
teaches on ethical issues at 
the Institute de Empresa in 
Madrid, believes that corpo- 
rate codes of ethics can often 
play a useful role. "One ex- 
ample is the BBV bank, 
which drew up such a code 
in 1990 when the Banco de 
Bilbao and the Banco de 
Vizcaya merged to form the 
BBV." he says. "This helped 
to minimize conflicts and to 
define a new corporate iden- 
tity” 

Research earned out joint- 
ly bv Ashridge and ethics 
consultants Integrity Works 
in Britain also suggests that 
concrete steps should be tak- 
en. In a report on their re- 
search findings, authors An- 
drew Wilson of Ashridge 
and John Drummond of in- 
tegrity Works advise a four- 
point action plan. This starts 
with an “ethics audit," fol- 
lowed by the creation of a 
code of ethics. Monitoring 
and enforcement procedures 
should then be set up, ac- 
companied by the develop- 
ment of an "ethics index."

V - f? r*i Central and Fa«;t ■irhoots existf»d in rived from a nuick readine ' becoming Iiknei 


f vr# Central and East 
European busi- 
aLasaafl ness education 
shows marked signs of 
slowing down. The lessons 
learned from it. however, 
are still being absorbed. 

A simple perception trig- 
gered the business-educa- 
tion boom in 1990. "Every - 
body in Central and Eastern 
Europe saw a personal op- 
portunity in getting a form 
of business education, and 
they all rushed to take ad- 
vantage of it." says Allan 
Gibb, chairman of the Small 
Business Centre at Durham 
University’s Business 
School and a leading expert 
on the East’s nascent corpo- 
rate sectors. The “every- 
body” he refers to comprises 
university students and 
would-be entrepreneurs 
seeking new career opportu- 
nities as well as managers of 
public-sector companies try- 
ing to keep existing posi- 
tions. 

To handle the rush, thou- 
sands of business schools - 
reportedly 300 in Hungary 


alone - were founded. Soon, 
business schools existed in 
all of the region's 19 coun- 
tries. including Albania and 
Romania. 

Even this sudden abun- 
dance of schools did not sat- 
isfy demand. The overflow 
from the East helped man- 
agement schools in Vienna. 
Munich and Berlin combat a 
recession-caused slump in 
enrollment. In many of these 
schools. Central and East 
European businesspeople 
make up between a third and 
a half of their student bod- 
ies. 

The abundance of schools 
was accompanied by a rela- 
tive lack of experienced in- 
structors - a shortage that 
Westerners were only too 
happy to fill. A very motley 
crew made its way eastward 
to dispense the gospel of the 
free- mark e; economy. Their 
ranks ranged from S5,000-a- 
dav management experts 
with 20 years of experience 
in rescuing major companies 
to recently graduated mas- 
ters of international eco- 
nomics. whose practical 


THE BEST WAY FOR THE M.B.A. 

Since 1962. the fnstttut Franco- American de Management 
(IFAM) prepaes students with its 4-year program for an MBA 
diploma from a major American university and the IFAM -diploma. 

In additon to IFAM's associate universities. University of Hartford, 
North-eastern University in Boston. Pace University in New York. 
Temple University in Philadelphia, where students study in their 
3rd or 4th year, IFAM also maintains privileged ties with presti- 
gious American graduate schools. IFAM students, therefore, 
complete their MBA at the University of Pennsylvania ( Wharton ). 

University ot Chicago. Indiana U.. University of Wisconsin. Duke 
U. George Washington U.. Mac Gill U. 

In 1986. IFAM’s rapid development led to the creation of the 
program, MBA University. In association with top American busi- 
ness schools, this program offer a 1-year MBA to university 
graduates and executives. 




business expertise was de- 
rived from a quick reading 
of the biographies of 
Nicholas Hayek and George 
Soros. The Westerners’ 
sources of funding were also 
variegated: the European 
Union, private-sector phil- 
anthropy, national foreign- 
aid programs and paid com- 
missions from local govern- 
ments. Their underlying 
message was. however, unr 
varying: Let us (from the 
West) use our models to 
show you (in the East) how 
business is to be done. 

An outbreak of realism 
was responsible for reining 
in the boom. 

"Central and East Euro- 
peans have quickly devel- 
oped an eye for quality, and 
this has checked their unbri- 
dled enthusiasm. They have 
learned to discern which 
schools really offer value- 
for-money education.” says 
Danica Purg, director of the 
International Executive De- 
velopment Center in Brdo 
pro Kranj, Slovenia and 
president of the 
Central/Eastern Europe 
Management Development 
Association (CEEMAN), a 
network of 28 leading insti- 
tutions located in the region 
and in other parts of Europe. 
"The schools have also 
quickly learned that having 
a Western instructor is not 
necessarily a guarantee of 
high-quality education.” 

According to Gay Hask- 
ins, international education 
expert al the Brussels-based 
European Forum for Man- 
agement Development, this 
growing hard-eyed realism 
has produced a consolida- 
tion in Central and East Eu- 
ropean business education. 
"It is still a very volatile

Knicks Finally Overcome 3 -Time Champion Bulls 


By Michael Wilbon 

HmAugioit Past Senict 

NEW YORK — It took seven 
games, it took 18 second-half 
points from center Patrick Ewing 
after a scoreless first half, it took 2U 
rebounds from forward Charles 
OakJey, it took interior passing 
they didn't even know rhey had. 

But ultimately, before 19,763 zeal- 
ots in Madison Square Garden, the 
New York Knicks beat the Chicago 
Bulls in an Eastern Conference 


playoff series, 87-77, on Judgment 
Day, Game 7 , and advanced to the 


conference championship matchup 
with the Indiana Pacers. 


“!l look hard work. I’ll tell you 
that,” said Oakley, a towel draped 
over his head. 

So it goes in the Eastern Confer- 
ence of die National Basketball As- 
sociation. The Boston Celtics, once 
upon a lime, had to overcome the 
Philadelphia 76ers; the Detroit Pis- 
tons had to overcome the Celtics, 
and the Bulls had to overcome the 
Pistons. It is an evolutionary pro- 
cess to eventually slay the dragon 
Lbai tormented you. The three-lime 
defending champion Bulls had tor- 
mented the Knicks for three years, 
but will do so no more. 

The Knicks coach, Pat Riley, had 
told Ewing and Oakley before ibe 
series that they would have to be at 
their best in the most critical games 
if New York was going to seriously 
stalk an NBA title. 

After picking up two quick fouls 
'and failing to score in the first half, 
.Ewing finished with 18 points and 
i7 rebounds, 14 of those after inter- 
mission. Oakley had 17 points to go 
with his 20 rebounds, and the two 
'big men combined for 10 of New 
York’s 21 assists. 

Scoitie Pippen scored a game- 


high 20 points for the Bulls, Horace 
Gram had 17 and Pete Myers 15. 
But Chicago was beaten too sound- 
ly in rebounding {52-44 overall. 1 S- 
7 on the offensive end) to continue 
its improbable march toward a 
fourth straight championship. 

“When we closed the doors of 
the locker room." said the Bulls' 
coach, Phil Jackson. “I told the 
team, “We haven’t been unem- 
ployed at this point of the season 
for a long time.’ " 

Indeed, the Bulls will be absent 
from the NBA’s Eastern Confer- 
ence Finals for the first time since 
1988. after five straight trips. 


“To do something like this is 
once in a lifetime, and we had a 
great ran.” Gram said. “It was very 
weird walking off the floor and not 
being champs again." 

B. J. Armstrong, who scored 
eight points after averaging 18.2 in 
the series, said: "We have to let it 
go. We worked hard this year. We 
had one little lapse in the third 
quarter and that’s when we blew 
the game." 

That lapse, and the tact that the 
Bulb didn’t build a lead with Ew- 
ing on the bench with foul trouble 
the first half was pretty much the 
story of Game 7. 

Although Ewing had no points at 
intermission and guard John Starks 
had a single free throw, the Bulls 
trailed 38-37 at ihe half, which for 
the defending champions was an 
ominous sign. As the Knicks for- 
ward Anthony Mason said. “When 
your top two scorers aren’t shoot- 
ing and you're up a point, you fig- 
ure it’s a pretty good situation be- 
cause that’s not going to continue." 

Even so. the Bulk opened a 57- 
53 lead on a Pippen basket with 


4:56 left in the third, forcing Riley 
to call time out. 

But Ewing scored on a turn- 
around to get the Knicks within 
two, Pippen missed, and Charles 
Smith's reverse jam on Grant tied 
the game at 57. The Bulk looked 
ready to pull away again, leading 
63-60 after Grani’s jumper. Bur 
Luc Longley couldn’t make a layup 
with no defender between him and 
the rim. 

The Knicks had the only break 
they needed. OakJey scored after 
Longley’s miss and then Greg An- 
thony blocked Armstrong at one 
end. leading to a Ewing bank shot 
at the other to give New York the 
lead for good. 64-63, with 45 sec- 
onds left in the third. 

Riley had written three pregame 
musts on the blackboard: hold the 
Bulls to less than 80 points (check): 
keep them under 45 percent shoot- 
ing (check) and ouirebound them 
by 15 (close enough). He also want- 
ed a complete game of relentless 
aggression, which his team gave 
him for the first lime in the series. 

At the final buzzer, the Bulls 
handed out not only handshakes 
but hugs. To the Knicks. With kind 
words. The Bulls weren't about to 
pass the torch the way the Pistons 
did. walking off the court with sev- 
eral seconds left in a Game 4 Chi- 
cago sweep in Detroit in 1991. 

“You couldn't ask for a greater 
opponent.’* Anthony said of the 
Bulls. “They're a great team, with 
talent and great coaching, poise, 
everything.” 

Riley added: “It's hard to win 
three-in-a-row and then one year 
you don't win it. Despite what has 
been said and been felt between the 
two teams, this has been a great 
bitter rivalry born out of competi- 
tion."

In Lottery, Bucks 
Win No. 1 Pick 


For NBA Draft 


Reuters 

NEW YORK — The Milwaukee 
Bucks were the big winners of the 
National Basketball Association’s 
annual draft lottery, winning for 
the first time since 1977 the Flo. 1 
pick in the league's draft. 

The Dallas Mavericks, who fin- 
ished with just 13 victories for the 
worst record in the league, won the 
second overall pick Sunday for the 
June 29 draft and the Detroit Pis- 
tons will pick third. The Pistons 
and Bucks tied for the worst record 
in the Eastern Conference at 20-61 

The 1 1 teams that failed to quali- 
fy for the playoffs were eligible for 
the lottery. A new system increased 
the chances of the teams with the 
worst records of getting a top picks. 
The Minnesota Timberwolves, also 
,with a 20-62 record, will get the 
fourth draft selection. 

Glenn Robinson of Purdue, the 
nation’s leading collegiate scorer, is 
considered the top prize of the 
draft- Gram Hill of Duke and Ja-

Ronning converted a return pass from Momesso at 17:35 of the 
third period — a play started by Gelinas — to break open a contest 
featuring brilliant goal tending at both ends. 

“Everyone knows Serg is Italian and a little hot-blooded.” Ron- 
ning said. “We do a give-and-gu game that suits him and suits me. 
Our line, we’re definitely not superstars. We work hard whenever we 
get out there. 1 think that’s important.” 

Ronning’s fourth goal of the playoffs ruined a solid but cautious 
Toronto attempt to even the series. 

Pavel Bure, with his 13tb playoff goal, scored into an empty net 
after Felix Potvin was pulled for an extra attacker. 

The Leafs were denied 29 times by goalie Kirk McLean, who tied a 
playoff record with his fourth shutout. It was McLean’s second in a 
row over the Leafs, who have not beaten him for the last 1 35 minutes 
and 23 seconds. 

“Cliff Ronning is probably our most improved player over three 
years." said Canucks coach Pat Quinn. "He’s learned to play the 
other side of the game defensively ” 

McLean and Potvin traded huge saves for 57 minutes, with 
McLean making the more difficult ones. 

Vancouver has won three in a row after an overtime loss tn Game 1

After the Padres won. San Diego’s Tony Gwynn 
said: "You could just sense that the guys were wonder- 
ing. ‘How are we going to blow it today?’ When 
Plamier hit the home run, it was more just a feeling of 
relief that we had gotten the lead back.” 

Plantier fouled olT several pitches from Mitch Wil- 
liams before hitting a 1-2 pitch deep into the righl- 
cenierfieid pavilion for his 13lh homer of the season. 

San Diego moved ahead 5-3 with four runs in the 
fifth, but Houston came back to take a 6-5 lead on 
Luis Gonzalez’s two-run double in the seventh. 

Braves 8, Rockies 3: Maddux limited Colorado to 
five hits before giving way to Mark WohJers in die 
eighth. He finished off all seven innings with strike- 
outs, including his third in a row of Howard Johnson 
to escape from a bases- loaded jam in the sixth. 

Lance Painter, making his first appearance for the 
Rockies this season after being called up from Class 
AAA Colorado Springs, gave up three runs in the 
third, including Terry Pendleton's two- run homer.

P ARIS — Roland Garrcis was unveiling its newest coun and called on

Btomcnanrs was belting oot “La Marseillaise" as loud as they could:

Leconte said. “Even if I enjoy myself playing tennis sometimes. Tam not

when 1 am getting older I am going to be slower a gain, especially with the 
operation I had. 1 feel pain all the time, but I get used to that . . 

A Tew reporters left his impending funeral to go watch Martina. 

Yon didn’t expect Martina to lose on the first dav of the French Open, in 
hg firetappearana: here in six years. She is 37,' or 16 years older than 
Miriam Orcmans, the 54th-ranked Dutchwoman whoso upset her, 6-4, 6-4. 

“This is not a farewell lour." said Navratilova, who will remain in Paris 
to play doubles. “This is my last year on the circuit. 1 just felt I wanted 
more matches going into Wimbledon because I felt last vear I wasn’t 
sharp enough because I hadn’t played enough." 

It was never quite right for her Monday, and to attribute it simply to 
natural causes is to ignore the wonder of her world No. 4 ranking, and the 
fact that she has not finished any of the last 19 seasons ranked lower than 
No. 5. Navratilova won this championship in 1982 and 1984. But clay is 
her least favorite surface, and she bad been advised against returning here 
by her coach, Craig Kardon, as well as by Billie Jean King. “But 1 don’t 
think they were worried about me losing in the first round.” she said. 

Perhaps if she had become angrier sooner — but that’s a tough demand 
for someone who has hit the ball so many hundreds of thousands of times 
and heard people crying “Go Martin a"m so many different languages. 
Yet that is the difference between someone like her and someone like 
Leconte, who reasonably and realistically hopes to make the most of what 
he’s got His is the kind of high life that leads to dogged arteries and other 
ailments; Martina will never be that type. She probably was 
ag of winning the tournament.

The Allocated Frets 

PARIS — Martina Navratilova 
was ousted from the French Open 
on Monday in a shocking first- 
round upset by Miriam O rcmans of 
the Netherlands. 

Orem an s, a 21-year-old with 
only one victory in eight previous 
events this year, had more energy 
and fewer emus in winning. 6-4. 6- 
4. The fourth-seeded Navratilova, 
37. hadn’t lost in the first round of 
a Grand Siam since the U.S. Open 
in 1976. 

After match point, she slammed 
her racket into a chair on the side- 
line. smashing the frame. 

“At that point 1 was too disap- 
pointed to care about anything." 
she said. “I’ve never done that be- 
fore. I hope 1 never do it again, i 
was too sad to care at the moment" 

In contrast to Navratilova, the 
top seeds Steffi Graf and Pete Sam- 
pras were easy winners. 

Sampras, seeking to become the 
first man since Rod Laver in 1969 
to win four consecutive Grand 
Slam events, overpowered 109th- 


year. 1 really wanted to play one 
last time.’’ she said. “I'm still happy 
1 came — ] just wish I had plaved 
better.” 

Grafs triumph was never in 
doubt on a bright breezy morning. 
But Sludenikova. a 21-vear-dd 
Slovak ranked only 100th. broke 
service twice in the first set and 
kept the defending champion on 
coun for 57 minutes — longer than 
usual for a Graf first-round match.

Steffi Graf cruised past Katarina Sludenikova in straight sets on Monday as rhe French Open began. 


6-4. 64. Graf took the first step 
toward a fifth straight Grand Slam 
title with a 6-2. 6-2 victory over 
Katarina Sludenikova. 

Navratilova, who said this was 
her last French Open, had readied 
at feast the fourth round in her 1 1 
previous appearances. She won the 
title twice, was runner-up four 
times and before Monday had a 52- 
9 record in the event 

“Seeing that this was my last

Grand Slams she won in 19SS-89. 
Margaret Court won six in a row in 
1969-71 and Navratilova did the 
same in 1983-84. 

To equal Coun and Navratilova. 
Graf would have to stay at peak

“It’s a long stretch." she said.

most difficult part of the year." 

Sampras never has reached the 
semifinals in four previous appear- 
ances at Roland Garros stadium. 
Gay has always been his shakiest 
surface, yet he’ is favored to win a 
tide that would assure his place 
among the all- time greats. 

Since Laver, no man has won all 
Tour Grand Slam tournaments, 
even nonconsecutively. For Sam- 
pras. Boris Becker and Stefan Ed- 
berg. the French Open is the one 
missing title.

Bruguera, seeded sixth, has been

Sampras's toughest challenge

“Had I been able to get through the first round. 1 think I would have 
been OJL here," she said. 


She likes to involve the crowd and ride their emotions, but she was 
assigned to Court 1, which on Monday was a shallow, uncrowded bowl 
holding a couple thousand. “I just wish I had got on Crater Coun." 
Navratilova said. “I was disappointed I didn’t play there:" 

There was something more to her disappointment than the inspiration 
of winning a match. She has, after aD, won more than 1,400 of them. In 
the second set, she began to throw tantrums, trying to incite heraelf with 
panic; or perhaps the panic, helpfully, took over on its own. She cursed 
herself and tossed herself around, and it was all decided by the sixth game 
of the second set Orcmans was serving, and it went cm and on, like being 
chased in a dream. It went on fra- 18 pants. Martina had a half-dozen 
chances to break through, and maybe then she would have been O.K.: 
This is not a farewell tour. 

It really isn’t 

The last shot of the crucial game came off her forehand. The net is 
latticed like a racket and the bafl dung to it on her side. She grabbed her 
own racket with both hands like a microphone, turning away, and 
everyone could hear her cry, “Oh God . . 

As fra the foreign day at Roland Garros, it is the shade of a perfect 
sunrise; and the court had been swept to ressemble the beaches on such 
mornings, smooth and firm; at least, Navratilova seems to regard every 
court this way. She looks around as if she wants to always remember the 
moment, not to cash in on it, but to breathe life into it and make it last 

**I tty not to think about it,* she said. “When I do, I get misty eyed. I 
think that is why I was more affected by losing because 1 know this is the 
last tune, and it would have probably been easier on myself if I hadn't 
said this is my last year." 

As she was walking off the court, she slammed her racket down tike an

Previous Drug Rehab 
For Capriati Reported 


The Associated Press 

MIAMI — Jennifer Capriati spent time in drug rehabilitation 
three months before she was arrested on marijuana possession 
charges. Newsweek reported. 

The magazine, reporting Sunday for this week’s editions, said the 
tennis star, 18, bad spent more than a week at The Manors, a S950-a- 
day private psychiatric hospital in Tarpon Springs. Florida. Capriati 
is currently undergoing drug rehabilitation at Mount Sinai Medical 
Center in Miami Beach. 

Newsweek said two girls who spent much of the weekend with 
Capriati before her arrest May 16 at a Coral Gables motel had also 
been treated at the clinic. 

A Capriati spokeswoman would not say whether the player had 
ever been admitted to a shnilar program before her arrest. 

A spokeswoman fra The Manors said Florida law prohibits the 
facility from releasing confidential information about patients. 

Newsweek outlined a series of events leading to the arrest: 

Capriati began a weekend binge Friday, May 13, with the decision 
to dnve from Boca Raton to Miami to meet a 16-year-old girl with 
whom she had become friendly at the clinic 


The girl reportedly introduced Capriati to another girl, Timineet 
, 17, who had also been treated at The Manors. They then 


Branagan, 

embarked on three days of partying that ended when Branagan's 
parents sent the police to the motel where Capriati was arrested. 

Nathan Wilson, who partied with the group, told Newsweek he 
had used cocaine and heron with Capriati over the weekend, 
echoing a daim made last week by Tom Wineland, a Connecticut 
drug-offender arrested with Capriati. 

But another man who attended the party. Mart Black. 19, insisted 
to Newsweek that Capriati used no heavy drugs.

LONDON (Combined Dis- 
paicbes) — The V/flliams-Rraauli 
fftttn is trying to coax the former 
world champion Nigel Mansell 
back to Formula One this season to 
replace Ayrton Senna, a British 

newspaper reported Monday. 

- According ro the mass-circula- 
tion Sun tabloid, Williams is pre- 
pared to pay $21 million to buy out 
Mansell's contract with IndyCar 
team Newman-Haas for the rest of 
the Formula One season Mansell 
would race in the Indian apohs 500 
on Sunday but would switch to 
Formula One for the French Grand 
Prix on July 3, the Sun said. 

The paper said the team was 
“desperate" to replace Senna, who 
was killed at the San Marino Grand 
Prix three weeks ago. The New- 
man- Haas chief, Carl Haas, was 
quoted as saying be was aware of 
MansdTs talks on joining Wiliams 
“fra selected races.” (AP, AFP)

5 Donahue on Death Row 



Buchwald 


[IMSHINGTON - l knew it 
tV would come to this sooner or 
-ater — Phil Donahue is asking a 
■forth Carolina court to grant him 
lermissioo to videotape the June 
5 execution of convicted murderer 
David Lawson. 

This would be a first for the talk 
. h hows and Oprah and Geraldo are 
gnashing their 
j”eeih that iheir 
Jooking agents 
“hadn't thought 
"if it first. 

“ I can’t wait to 
^iee the Donahue 
^broadcast be- 
muse the show 

Should set ofr 
“sparks. 

The entire 
program will 

uhave to be moved to Death Row 
c Studio A at the prison and the 
caudience will be bused in. 

I D 

t The show will probably go some- 
t thing like this: The condemned 
i man is brought into the room, he 
(hugs Phil ana then takes his seat in 
i the electric chair as everyone ap- 
iplauds.

Gay Rights Group 
Seeks Pardon 
For Oscar Wilde 

Reuters 

L ONDON — A British gay 
rights group said Monday that 
it had asked for a royal pardon For 
the playwright Oscar Wilde in time 
to mark the 100th anniversary 1 of 
his conviction for homosexuality. 

Wilde, the author of plays such 
as “The Importance of Being Ear- 
nest,” was jailed on May 25. 1895. 

Peter TaicfaelL, a spokesman for 
the gay rights group Outrage, said 
that his group had written to Queen 
Elizabeth 11 asking her to pardon 
the writer, whose plays mocked 
Britain's straitlaced society. “Wilde 
was the victim of unjust laws," Tai- 
chell said. “His imprisonment is a 
stain on the judicial system.'’ 


“Nervous, squeamish, remorse- 
ful — what’s going on with you 
knowing that in less than one hour 
you will fry?" 

“1 didn’i do it." 

“Right." 

Then Phil runs up the stairs. 
“This lady here." 

“1 saw ‘Hard Copy’ and T think 
that David is a skunk. 1 hope he 
gets a thousand volts for each crime 
he committed." 

□ 

The audience applauds and Phil 
sticks his mike out. 

“The gentleman over here.” 

The man speaks. Tin against 
capita] punishment and 1 think that 
this whole sbow is a farce.” 

The audience boos. 

Phil runs down the stairs and 
says to Lawson. “Did you ever 
think that you would wind up in 
the hot seat?” 

“Probably when I was a kid, but 
it was just a fantasy.” 

“Maybe you should have lis- 
tened to your mother.” 

“1 know I should have listened to 
her before my lawyer.” 

Phil runs back up the stairs and 
sticks the microphone into a lady's 
face. 

“Is it true that they give you a 
good meal before they puli the 
switch?” 

Lawson responds, "That’s what 
they tell you. but I round out that it 
wasn't true. I asked for a medium- 
rare steak and they served it well- 
done. I complained to the warden 
and he said that it was up to the 
governor to decide if I could send it 
back to the kitchen. The governor 
refused. So 1 was stuck with a tough 
steak. The apple pie was pretty 
good, but I passed up the coffee 
because t didn't want it to keep me 
awake." 

D 

Phil jumps over three rows of 
guests and a man grabs his mike, 
“fs there any chance of you getting 
a pardon?" 

David says, "I hope so. even 
though it might ruin the sweeps for 
Phil’s show.” 

The man says, “Phil do you even 
care if the murderer gets a par- 
don?” 

“The show goes on whether he 
gels electrocuted or not. David, 
what would you like the governor 
to give you right now?" 

“Oprah’s cookbook.” 


Cowgirl Blues 
By Gus Van Sant 


By Rita Kemp ley 

Washington Post Service 


N EW YORK — Gus Van Sam folds 
his arms, crosses his legs and effec- 
tively retreats into his Own Private Idaho, 
a state adjacent to Catatonia and far re- 
moved from pressing questions about his 
latest film, “ Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. 
Unshaven and unfocused, he seems to 
have drifted off like the narcoleptic hustler 
in his previous odd opus. 

Neither coffee nor coaxing seems to 
rouse the 42-year-old filmmaker. A point- 
ed question is offered as 
a ptefc-me-up. So. how — — — 
did it feel when the first 
cut of “Cowgirls” was 
hogtied. branded and 
docked at the Toronto 
Film Festival? Surely 
i his must hurt? Van 
Sant pulls and twists 
the hairs of his right 
eyebrow, perhaps an 
alerting mechanism: 

“Uh. yeah. I mean, it made us. like, keep 
working on it. yeah." 

The first cut was too episodic, says the 
producer. Laurie Parker, of the adaptation 
of Tom Robbins’s novel. “* , ~“ J ~ r 


ic, the second more coherency.” Though 
he refuses to compare the book with the 
adaptation, he admits to one regret: 
“When Gus and I met, I suggested that he 
change the size of Sissy's thumbs from 
scene to scene. I used 30 or 40 metaphors 
to describe Sissy's thumbs, ranging in size 
from a cucumber to a basebaH bat, so that 
each reader could decide what they looked 
like. If there’s anything 1 don’t like about 
having the book filmed, it’s that the 
thumbs are pinned down to a specific 
size.” 


In any case, they are a distraction. Peter 
al film writer and professor 
iioa the cast 


Burnett, a local 


The first version of 
'Even Cowgirls Get 
the Blues 9 hit the 
cutting room floor. 


'll was kind of 
like the greatest hits of ‘Even Cowgirls Get 
the Blues.' You'd have to make it like 
‘Berlin Alexanderpiatz’ {which runs more 
than 15 hours) to present all of Robbins’s 
digressions. As it was. we ended up going 
back to our original idea of focusing on 
Sissy and the cowgirls." 

Bora with thumbs like kielbasa. Sissy 
Hankshaw (Uma Thurman) is a beautiful 
hitchhiker whose travels take her to a 
Western spa, the Rubber Rose Ranch. 
There she falls in love with Bonanza Jelly- 
bean (Rain Phoenix), a feminist cowgirl 
who liberates the spa from its sexist-pig 
owner (John Hurt), a cross-dressing manu- 
facturer of feminine hygiene deodorant 
spray. 

Most everything else lies on the cutting 
room floor. The cosmic timekeepers called 
Oockpeople have vanished along with 
many scenes involving the Chink (Pat 
Moriia), a dippy holy man wbo lives on a 
ridge above the ranch, which is also borne 
to a flock of endangered whooping cranes 
who come under the control of Delores 
Del Ruby (Lorraine Bracco), a whip- 
cracking prophetess. 

Robbins, who narrated both versions, 
says that “the first version had more mag- 


writer and 
who sat behio 
at the Toronto pre- 
miere, remembers 
thinking that the 
thumbs made the movie 
unsalvageablc. "Some- 
thing that worked in a 
novd — like Big Fat 
Thumbs — does not 
work visually.” 

Van Sam's response: 

"A lot of stuff relates to 
thumbs because thumbs were the main 
theme throughout, so no matter what you 
did thumbs were sort of part of itr 

The more Van Sant says, the less we 
know about what makes him tick. Asked if 
he exerts control over all aspects of the 
filmmaking process, he says, “It’s not real- 
ly a matter erf what I da Since Tm doing it, 
it ends up looking like I did il If some- 
body else does it, then it starts to go 
wrong.” 

Is it any wonder he's drawn to both 
poetic imagery and laconic protagonists? 

“When f first met Gus, I thought he had 
the personality at a painter,” ventures 
Parker, who began working with him on 
“Drugstore Cowboy." “He’s ruled by the 
imagination, like the characters played by 
Uma and River. Those characters have a 
way of breveting in their imagination that 
is very much luce Gas’s." Bracco gushes 
from her New Jersey home, “Tm such a 
fan of Gus Van Sant. I don’t care if he 
makes a photograph, a commercial or a 
film, I am just totally interested in his 
vision. I loved working with Gus. I felt 
that artistically he was very available, that 
he trusted what I brought to the character. 
The really great directors trust in their cast 
and let them go." 

Robbins, who spent a week and a half 
on location, echoes Bracco. “Gus had a 
dog on the set, a cute black-and-white 
mongrel Tied to the dog’s collar was a 
rope that must have been 30 or 40 feet

long, h was the longest leash by far that I 
have ever seen, ft was the same with actors 
— be had a rein on them, but it was a 
pretty long leash.” 1 

If critical reaction at a recent screening 
of “Cowgirls” means anything — one re- 
viewer called Branco’s performance ca- 
reer-ending — Van Sant might want to 
consider a choke hold. The film is not only 
a psychedelic retie, it's a politically incor- 
rect disaster. 

Few women will find rote models for 
themselves in “Cowgirls." which was after 
all written with stoned, braless hippie 
chicks in mind. Bracoo's character is cer- 
tainly assertive, but boUwhips aren't your 
ordinary gal's accessory. “It’s difficult to 
find people in Manhattan to teach you 
bow to buD-whip,” says Bracco. “It’s not a 
part of eastern culture, so I went to the 
East Village and got a guy who was into 
S&M." 

Once again we turn to Robbins for elu- 


cidation. “The book is not a feminist work 
in the political sense, it’s a hymn to the 
fenmrine spirit: the values that are associ- 
ated with the lunar sensibility, the more ; 
creative side, a side that tills m ttw direc- 
tion of color as opposed to drabness, to 
dance as opposed to . footbati, . to -night as 
opposed to day, the intmtiveu opposed tp - 
the logical Here's a a important care-desire 
as opposed to reason. - 

“The values that ?m talking about are 
universal and have been attributed to the- 
f eminme throughout history, butihCy are r 
not necessarily limited to the feminine 
gender. They're associated with die male' 
too. I bring fids up, because T wouldn't 
want anybody to get the notion that; 
“Cowgirls’ had a purely female slant lip 
was the '70s, but tiw era we called the ’60s 
was still very much present Those values 
associated with the- universal feminine 
were dominant, among the males as much 
as among the women.”
